After Niagra Falls, we used the new ‘Customs Boarder Protection Roam App’, (CBP Roam) and cleared Virtually into the States.
We then Upped Anchor and motored across Lake Ontario, an overnighter, arriving at the entrance to the Oswego Canal around 8am.
We anchored in the outer Harbour and readied our fenders and wood boards.
Oswego Light house in serious need of repair.
South African ‘Dolossa’ as their Breakwater.
and then started the the process of Locking Up Through 8 Locks of the Oswego Canal.
Interesting Lock with a Bridge over the Lock. We had to make sure we tied up AFTER the bridge so that we were not caught either under the bridge or behind the bridge after we Locked Up.
Bridge with only 5’ clearance
Most of the ‘Canal’ was River with lovely river banks
Houses Big and Small along the banks
Whilst only 40 miles, it was 6.30pm by the time we arrived at Brewerton, and tied up to their Town Dock.
