Along the Erie Canal
There are a lot of beautiful wooden boats up here docked along the canal. Picture on the left is an example.
We are at the terminal wall (sounds final!) in Canajoharie. We found the two places that are essential-- the Post Office and the Ice Cream Store. We have passed through 13 locks and under a lot of low bridges. Our highest lift so far has been 35 feet. Yet to come is Lock 17, the highest on the Erie Canal, at 40'. So far, we've only looked like newbies one time!
