Tuesday, May 20, 2014 Things are Looking Up!

I want to wish a Happy Birthday to our wonderful daughter-in-law, Tiffany!

Not much is happening at Newark today...until the supervisor of our section of the Erie Canal stopped to talk to us this afternoon. He told us that he was going to approve the opening of the canal for tomorrow from lock 28A through lock 30. Yes!! That means we can move tomorrow but only as far as Fairfield or Pittsford. Everything looks good in this part of the canal but they were still moving daymarkers back where they belong. The super said that they are still waiting for the waters on the Genessee River to subside. At least this a great start

look at how much wall we have-facing locks
We also had a visit form Bob Stopper. This was a pleasant surprise! He is a greeter from the town of Lyons and drove the 5 miles to chat and get our email. The short time we spent at Lyons last Wednesday night, Bob took a picture of Happy Hours II tied up to the town's bulkhead. When he came to welcome us, we must have been out walking around Lyons. So, he hunted us down to tell us that we made a smart decision when we moved from the bottom of the 2 dams up to Newark before the storm hit the area. He was going to send pictures to prove it! Such a great guy.  The next 5 pictures were taken by Bob showing the flooding below the dams at Lyons!

We were tied up along this wall the day before!  Look at the power pedestals!! Lock 27 in the background.

We needed to get away from the boat, so at 8:30 we walked to Parker's Bar and Grill to watch LeBron play the Pacers!
