July 22, 2015  Day 32  New York Summer 2015
Free City Dock, north of Lock 7
Oswego, NY

Day three here in Oswego. Winds are too strong for either transiting the lock and especially to be out on Lake Ontario.

Dawn and Joyce walked across the bridge that goes over the canal to do a little shopping. New York grocery stores are not allowed to sell wine, so a wine shop was our first stop.  Then we walked across the street and picked up a few groceries at a local market. We were limited by what we could carry, so fortunately we did not need much!

After lunch we went for a long walk along the water, past the next lock and to a marina that is at the entrance to Lake Ontario. We could see the waves crashing on the lake. 

More looper boats arrived today and our dock wall is getting full. We all had a nice visit this afternoon sharing travel plans, etc. Some of the boaters will continue on the loop heading to Trenton, Ontario. Some are doing the Triangle Loop and will go up the St. Lawrence to Montreal and then to Sorel and down the Richelieu to the Champlain Canal.  We are just going to the Thousand Islands and then retracing our route.  We will all venture out on to Lake Ontario in a few days!

Our famed "Ticket to Ride" Game!
We had a quick dinner on board and then Colin and Dawn came over to play “Ticket to Ride”. We even had time for two games and Colin won them both!  A good night of strategy for him!

Several of us will meet for breakfast in the morning at the Oswego Tea Company.
