Looping in a State of Bliss

July 16 to Whitehall

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.
