We went out for breakfast at the Oswego Tea company with Phyllis, Dick, Janice and Dave at 6:50, as we wanted to be ready to go through the lock when it opened at 8. There was a south bound vessel coming through so we didn’t lock through until about 8:25. Lock 8, our last American lock on the Oswego Canal, once again the ropes and walls were very slimy. Saw this painted on the side of a building along the canal.We were out of the Oswego canal and into Lake Ontario by 8:45. The water was almost like glass.Here’s the lighthouse in the harbor and Fort Ontario from the water. Wasn’t a whole lot of traffic on Lake Ontario, this was the only large boat that we encountered and it appeared to be headed for the St. Lawrence.There were a few waves as the day progressed but a great day for our crossing! This was one of the lights that we saw marking a shoal,and here is the lighthouse on the tip of nine mile point.The wind turbines were on Wolfe Island I think.Here’s a few shots of Kingston, as we were approaching. We made the 3:00 opening of the Kingston Lasalle Causewayand tied up at the Kingston Marine by 3:30.We walked over to Confederation marina, as that is where Avocet had temporarily tied up.After they left we went to the Iron Duke pub for supper.
Today we rented a car so that we could get a new cell phone (431) 334-8831 and internet service, for the remainder of the trip in Canada. We had thought that our Verizon MIFI could be used with a Bell SIM card, but found out that this was not the case as we had an older model MIFI, so we bought a Bell MIFI. We did some grocery shopping and plan to move to Trident Yacht Club tomorrow.
