Today is Friday the 13th and we left the marina in Brewerton at 9:11. Good thing I am not superstitious. The saga of the over heating engine on The Laura Lee continues. Rich and Laura decided to continue travelling down the Erie Canal at a reduced speed of about 5 kts, it only overheats at 7+ kts. So we wished them safe travels and fair winds as we parted ways. We will both end up in Lake Erie so we may meet up again.
The Oswego River is much the same as the Erie Canal. Houses dot the landscape, along with small towns, bridges and locks. Six hours on the water today, we transited 9 locks
and 31 miles.
Our destination today was Oswego Marina in Oswego NY, at the mouth of Lake Ontario. We are officially back in the Great Lakes. Notice how blue the water is now that the lake is in sight. A nice change from the Erie Canal and further down on the Oswego river.
