Lock 6-1. So close....
17 July 2014 | Champlain Canal - Hudson River
Photo from inside the lock "going down". The goal is to keep the stepped mast from hitting at either end.... strange... place to be as the water dumps out.
Goals today was Federal lock -- just past Lock 1.
We went from, osprey alley to Grey Heron lane... Also alerted by one of the lock keepers of bald eagle in flight - which we saw then afteer exiting that lock spotted 2 more! We are not "birders" per se but you cannot help but take the beauty of all the local wildlife.
Crew all showered at Lock 3 - Mechanicville,NY BEAUTIFUL new facilities all handicapped accessible - real treat.
Arrived at lock 1 and are in holding pattern - as valves are not working - they have someone working on it but don't know how long it will be.
