At 1530 we pulled along the wall in Oswego for free dockage between Locks 7 and 8.

In the morning, we will go through Lock 8 and immediately head into Lake Ontario with a destination of Kinston, ON, a trip of about eight hours. From there we will enter the Rideau Canal on our way to Ottawa. We spent a week last summer on this canal and found it to be a peaceful rural setting dotted with small towns. Instead of marinas, there are walls where boats can tie up. The way you pay for this privilege is to buy a season pass for all of the Canadian canals (about $500). Typically there is no power or water available, but each offers a grassy area where we can walk Duke.
Beautiful sunset tonight.
It's good to be back on the water!
