Evidence of the flood of last year!!
Between lock 10 and 15 some of the locks saw water 10 ft higher than the top of the lock wall.
This particular lock had water as high as the middle of the windows on the first building.
The result was that lots of the earth was washed away, and had to be replaced.
Water fort is the start of the Erie Canal. The day we arrived in Water Fort it was the weekend after 4th of July, and there weekend to celibrate.
They had a steam boat show and it was nearly impossible to get a spot at the free wall.
We where lucky, as one boat left just as we where ready to dock.
So we spent the night. (29th of June)
