We have never done the Oswego Canal or the 1000 islands, so this was the year!

Joining us on our trip are our "girls" Ethyl and Lucy. Two 8 month old chihuahua-Tzi Shu mix.

July 6th-

Trailered KRII to Allen Treman State Park (Ithaca, NY) and launched. (First time KRII got her bottom wet in 2013!) Headed up to Lock CS1 to buy our 10 day pass. It's 11:30am.

After entering the canal we decided we would go as far as we can. This ended up being in Baldwinsville, NY, a town we have never stopped in before. Had dinner at the Bville Diner.

July 7th-

Headed for Oswego, NY. Bought 40 gallons fuel. ($4.56/gal) We could see the calm of Lake Ontario. Thunderstorms 4 hours away. (never saw them) Always heard never pass the chance to cross in calm waters. Headed for Cape Vincent. By the time we go to the entrance to St Lawrence we were picking up some swells. Did not see much after arriving to Cape Vincent so we moved on to Clayton, Stayed at the Municipal Marina. ($1.25/ft with electric) Bathroom and showers available.

Cool Town! Had dinner at the renovated restaurant O'Brien's.

July 8th-

Went back into town. Had wine on board and needed opener. Stopped at Reinharts.

Headed up to Heart Island-Boldt Castle. Breath taking. A must for all! $8 for self guided tour/10$ to include boat ride over to Boat house.

Crossed over to Bonnie Castle and bought 30 gallons of fuel. ($4.29/gal) Headed back to Clayton but admiral made observation how calm the water was. Could it be? Yep, another calm day on Lake Ontario. Headed to Oswego. Stayed on the wall between lock 7 and 8.

July 9-

Headed to Phoenix. Met the "Brats" who took care of us by walking Lucy and Ethyl and getting Ice.

Had dinner at Duskees. (Great wings!)

July 10-

Stayed in Phoenix. A evening thunderstorm that hit east and south of Phoenix gave us concern of going to Sylvan Beach.

Had Breakfast at Larkins. Weather is wet this morning otherwise we could of ordered from the Brats and it could of been delivered to the picnic table outside by the boat.

For dinner we ordered Cams Pizza. Sorry to say this was the only meal on the whole trip we hated. Pizza was under cooked.

July 11-

Back to Baldwinsville.

Stopped by J&S and bought 30 gallons fuel. (4.60/gal)

Dinner at Lock 24.

July 12-

Stayed in Baldwinsville. Last day of vacation.

Breakfast at Canal walk Café. Dinner at Bville Diner.

July 13-

Left Baldwinsville at 7:30 and arrived at Allen Treman at Noon. The crossing on Lake Cuyahoga was a little snotty. (Head wind) but we were light and skipped across the waves.

On the trailer and headed home. Home at 6PM.
