14 September 2010 | Buffalo, NY
After a long, bumpy ride from Erie, PA we arrived in Buffalo, NY. We had our mast unstepped at RCR Marina. They did a great job and made the whole process very painless. We were all expecting to have a very tense, trying day but it wasn't. A very nice couple stopped by the boat for a chat, then she came back and brought us a bottle of wine that is home made by 3 of the ladies here at the marina - 'Three Sheets' is the name of the wine. Very, very nice of her to do that.
We are off to the Erie Canal this morning. Our first lock will be the Black Rock Canal in Buffalo and hope to make it as far as Lockport and Locks E34/E35 this afternoon. Lock hours just went to their reduced schedule so they now close at 5:00 pm each day.
