July 21, 2015  Day 31  New York Summer 2015
Free City Dock, north of Lock 7
Oswego, NY

Today was spent at the dock as planned.  We knew we made the right decision to arrive yesterday when six more boats came in today with horror stories of being in the Oswego locks today, being swept sideways with strong wind and current.  No thank you!

We did enjoy meeting everyone who arrived. Two boats are Canadians; one is on the Great Loop, and two are actually boats we met earlier on the Erie Canal.  We walked down the East side of the lock wall and up the steps that lead to the street.  We found a nice park area and then a Tim Horton’s and Cold Stone Creamery.  So we had ice cream and then brought back donuts.  We do not buy sweets (other than ice cream) very often!  Bill also found time to work on his bird carving this afternoon!

We had dinner on board and the Colin and Dawn came for a visit and we played the train game again.  It is always fun to have them over, and we know that will end soon when we go our separate ways in a couple of days.

Wave heights on Lake Ontario are forecast at 4 feet tomorrow so that will keep us all here!
