The mast comes down, pretty scary to watch, and we begin our journey by motoring across Lake Ontario to Oswego where we enter the Erie Canal. Three and a half days and 31 locks later we arrive at Hop-o-nose Marina (love the name, means "love of water") where they put the mast back up. Not sure which is scarier, and we are again a sailboat. The weather gods have definitely been shining on us with sunny skies and warm weather, and since we did't have the mast up for most of the trip so far, no worries that there's been no wind. Hoping this weather is a good omen for the travels ahead.
