Locking went pretty smooth today...considering the high wind gusts of up to 25 mph...until we got to lock 8 at Scotia. Our handheld wasn't working properly and when I called the lock tender, the line was out of order! Great, how can that be? I finally called lock 7 to get the new lock 8 number.
What a long and tiring day! All 3 boats were ready to call it a day after 37.5 miles and 9 lockings. We tied up to the wall at Riverlink Park at Amsterdam, NY. Their floating docks aren't in yet and the facilities aren't open but none of us care. The wall is a great height and it has nice rubber bumpers running the entire length. The only down side to staying here is that Amtrak runs right beside the park and is very loud and noisy. Once I fell asleep, I didn't hear a thing!! Early to bed....
