Opening Day

19 May 2017

The town dock at Waterford normally handles ten to twelve boats but there were at least 19 boats there waiting for opening day on Friday. We spent the last two days there with our friends from 2 Outrageous checking out this historic town and enjoying the ambiance of a waterfront community. Mother Nature provided us with an unbelievable lightening show on Thursday evening as a cold front blew through; fortunately, we were all safely tucked away.

Friday morning we were up at 5:30 and on the road by 6 am to catch the opening of the first lock on our route. We said our good-byes to Paul and Laurie with whom we have travelled with from Green Turtle Cay in the Bahamas. It will seem strange not having 2 Outrageous in sight; however, we had a great time together and look forward to our next meeting. We arrived at lock one at 6:45 and found Anglezarke waiting to lock through so, we travelled all day with them. We lucked out totally with our timing and managed to transit ten of the eleven locks and arrived in Whitehall NY at 6:00 pm. The town has a great free dock located a couple of hundred yards from the last lock which offers free water and power to transient boaters. It is great to see what these small towns do to promote themselves and the waterway. I can think of a few towns at home who could take lessons from their initiatives.

Today's picture, locking through at lock two.
