First Customers for the Uproar Children's Library
15 September 2015 | Waterford, NY
Waterford is the east end of the Erie Canal. There is a flight of 5 locks that dropped Uproar like she was being flushed down a toilet. Yesterday was a rainy, breezy day that broke into sunshine when we docked at this delightful town.
Soon after docking, a boat with kids, Raptor, docked along the wall. We met Andy and Jamie and their three children, Owen, Carmel and Addie. They have had quite an adventure. Raptor left Cincinnati a year ago, sailed down the Ohio River to the Mississippi River to the Bahamas. They have worked their way up the east coast and just entered the Erie Canal with their mast down yesterday.
We offered some books from Uproar's hold and they were eager to enjoy them. Sadly their trip will end at Buffalo but it seems like they will cruise again.
