Waterford + beginning of Eastern Erie Canal June 25-26

It was a hot day on our way to the Troy lock – the first lock in the Eastern Erie Canal.

We did a walk around in Waterford and saw several historic buildings from the 1800’s

We stopped for a cool beverage at McGreivey’s bar and also the Angry Penguin Tavern. After the walkaround was done we headed back to McGreivey’s for dinner on their back porch. Appetizers were bacon wrapped scallops in a bourbon glaze with a Strawberry Old Fashioned– YUM!

We went for a 4 mile run on a local trail then walked to local grocery for re-provisioning.

Mary took a stroll to Peebles Island across the canal from Waterford and walked the perimeter of this small island which was a couple miles. There were several trails on Peebles Island. Here are some great pictures of this park.

We went to the Catholic Church at 4PM Saturday night before having a cookout and docktales with some other looper boats.
