Brockville to Crysler, ON

 We departed at 0900 for Crysler, ON a distance of 39 miles and one lock. We have been running slow around 10 knots but our speed in increased over the ground by the current to 12.  We had one lock to pass through today, Iroquois lock operated by the US, drop is only 6 inches.

Divers were seen often in the area of Brockville, too cold for me.
 We checked out a historic village nearby called Upper Canada Village.  Link to Village

One of the bridges near Brockville, over the St Lawrence.

We were approaching a lock so all on board had to don a life jacket also know as a PFD.  Even Bryce, Debbie thought.
 We share the waterway with the big boys which are seen often.
 We are entering Iroquois Lock, one of 7 before we reach Montreal.
 The marina is in a park setting so again, Debbie and Bryce are happy.  It is in a basin with 200 slips and a long dock for transients.

We decided to grill out tonight as the gas grills were very nice provided by the marina.  Restaurants were a van ride away so we enjoyed a great home "cooked" meal in Island Hopper.
