We left the excellent free facilities at Fort Edward after we called the lock and were told the doors were open. In addition to lock #7 we also locked through #8,9,11 (there is no #10). It’s another blazing hot day up the canal to Whitehall. When we reached our destination we were pleased to see the wall empty, since there are only 3 power pedestals. After we were secured 4 other boats arrived from the north three of whom were French Canadians. They shared information about Fuel stops, marinas and the route ahead. Walked to a convenience store and an ice cream shop before returning to the boats for the evening.
