Day 22

04 July 2013 | Waterford, NY
Happy July 4th! We are still waiting for the locks to open and the latest word is that it may be another week...as long as we don't get more rain!

We are very comfortable here at lock 2. We have power and water, and every week or so they send a pump-out truck. We have a beautiful park setting with lots of shade. The town is close for supplies and restaurants and I can't say enough about the people at the locks who have gone above and beyond to make our stay comfortable. The National Parks Service has come by with handouts and fresh fruit and vegetables; townsfolk have offered rides to stores. If we weren't anxious to get home, we couldn't ask for a better spot!

We had a Canada Day BBQ and today we will celebrate July 4th with another BBQ to be followed by live music and a movie in the park. This weekend is filled with events: a steamboat meet, vendors, music, fireworks and a farmers market on the dock.

So, while it is inconvenient to be delayed, we are not suffering at all. There are towns further west on the canal where people have lost their homes. We are thankful to be where we are!
