Left Waterford

We left Waterford and headed to Champlain Lock #1 passed Mechanicville which had a free dock with hydro and locked through 7 locks and turned up a creek to Fort Edward free dock and Hydro.  Tired it was a long day.DSC02621.JPG

Now John wanted me to go for a walk into town but I was to tired so he went for a walk and came back to talk to someone on the park bench.  By the way everyone says if you catch fish do not eat it.

We are parked in front of the police station and fire station so pretty safe it was.

Left Whitehall City and traveled on.

We came to rest and anchored at Fort Ticondergo.  Great spot and we took the dingy through a narrow river system into the town and took pictures of the falls.

  1. So. Great pictures of this leg. The fishermen, I cannot wait to see if John will grow the same beard? What a picture that will be. The Forts are really awesome. Glad you are having a ball on this trip of a lifetime.

  2. What is your ETA to Lake Simcoe (if that is possible)? We are going to be in Nova Scotia from July 25 until around August 17. We would love to hear your adventures in person!
