Day 11 – Open water, Haze on the horizon, and out of New York

Today was the first day on Lake Erie, no locks and no lift bridges, just open water and it was not chocolate brown.  We left the marina in Buffalo, NY headed for Erie, Pennsylvania with the goal of meeting our long-time friends Rob and Bonnie.  The lake was like glass leaving Buffalo, but it was hazy so not a great picture day.  Even though part of the day the lake was flat, those pesky flying bugs were out in full force! After pulling into the marina in Erie, we met Rob and Bonnie for a delicious, relaxing dinner.   DSE_3032   Leaving Buffalo, Erie Basin MarinaDSE_3031   Hazy day, got to check out the radar operation……….   DSE_3034   DSE_3035 The Admiral at the helm.
