Taking A Break in Oswego
Friday July 23, 2004

On July 21st we left Phoenix and passed through the 7 locks of the Oswego Canal. Twenty four miles later we fueled and settled into a slip at the Oswego Marina. We had heard a few days back that the upcoming weekend was the annual Oswego Harborfest. When we arrived many of the seasonal slip holders suggested we stay for the weekend festivities. The program includes Jazz, crafts, fireworks and an air show. It was an easy sell. The marina is right in the middle of all the activity so we decided to stay for the weekend.

After thirty locks our first lay day was spent cleaning the lock grime from the boat and fenders and re-provisioning. Now we are settling into a few days were Oswego has become an entertaining destination.

We received pictures by email of Lila our latest grandchild so her picture gets the place of honor for this log entry. Harborfest should provide some additional photo opportunities for our entry this weekend. Weather permitting we plan on crossing Lake Ontario on Monday for Sackets Harbor, NY and then on to Clayton, NY in the Thousand Islands.
