From Palymera to Baldwinsville and some new friends.

The views along the way are very diverse from the broken down dock to the ok dock to the super neat dock.  Some haven’t been used in years (at least I wouldn’t step on them.)  to others that look like party town.

Tammy holding us off the wall with the boat hook and holding onto the rope as we go down so we stay put in the lock.  I’m at the stern of the boat doing the same thing.  The gentleman in the bottom picture is the Lockmaster that runs the controls.  They usually ask how far we are going and advise the other Lockmasters that we are coming.

This is the option if you don’t use the locks.  Not very comfortable a ride and hard on the boat.

Today we met another cruising couple that sold everything and bought a boat.  The difference between them and us is they have 3 small children that they plan on home schooling.  They have a much bigger boat than us but they also plan on circumnavigating the globe right away.  We are taking it much slower.  Florida is a good start.

Till tomorrow

Give a man a fish and he will eat for a day.
Teach him how to fish and he will sit in a boat & drink beer all day.

“Living The Dream”
