Our quiet adventure
began at Cold Springs Harbour Marina, located in Liverpool, New York on
September 26th, 1999. Along with the other soon to be captains, we
were given an orientation of the canal boats, our home away from home for
the next week. Peter Wiles and Sarah Wiles of
Mid-Lakes Navigation Co. Ltd. accompanied our crew of three on the
first leg of our adventure to Lock 24 in Baldwinsville, NY. Along
the way we passed The City of Syracuse, one of Mid-Lakes Navigation Co.'s
dinner cruise boats. Peter gave our producer, Wendy Fetridge pointers
on piloting, while she pointed out the varied wildlife along the banks
of the Seneca River (part
of the Erie Canal System). The Great Blue Herrons were more than
willing to pose for our cameras.
