Weedsport and Beyond
The plan was to stop in Brewerton yesterday but, since it was early in the day and the weather was perfect, we pushed on through Lake Oneida. We stopped at Sylvan Beach at the other end instead.
Lake Oneida was a much bigger lake than we expected and it felt good to be on open water again. Thankfully the conditions were dead calm as Harley was a bit concerned about the mast, in this horizontal position, being jostled around in waves. I prepared dinner on the way with the plan to eat soon after we arrived but it seems every time we stop at port people want to stop and talk to us.
Needless to say, dinner was late, but let me tell you, we could stand to miss a couple of meals. This cruising life is murder on the waistline.
Today we travelled from Sylvan Beach to Little Falls and had this been the beginning of our trip we would be saying it was beautiful but we have been spoiled now and found today to be a little boring. However, Little Falls is beautiful and the cruising guides say that this could be the prettiest spot on the whole Erie Canal. We just arrived, so we’ll let you know.
