The day after I arrived in Seneca Falls the canal behind me closed due to high water. All traffic in the area on the Erie Canal stopped.
I had planned to be home for a few days at the end of the month, so wasn’t too fussed. Rob drove down to visit, we went for a side trip up to Geneva at the top of Seneca Lake, and then I left the boat in Seneca Falls and drove home with Rob.
I am writing this from a Greyhound bus on the way back to the boat. Greyhound goes to Geneva and then I will make my way to Seneca Falls by local transit or cab.
I have made a routing decision to get back to Canada via Oswego rather than continuing east on the Erie to Vermont. My headline goal this summer has always been to do the Rideau Canal, so I will head there next. It’s about a 1.5 day trip to Oswego, and weather looks ok for the lake crossing on the weekend.
