2013 Finishing the Great Loop
We stayed in a Comfort Lodge the first night and then moved onto Island Hopper which was "splashed" on Monday.
I had a checklist of items to be accomplished before we left for Lake Ontario and then Canada. After sitting in storage for over 9 months they were many items needing attention.
We completed the checkout and repair of various systems by Sunday but the weather has not cooperated. There was torrential rain before we arrived and one day we have been here which has resulted in the closure of the Erie and Oswego Canal. So here it is Monday June 17 and no formal word when it may reopen but it is rumored to be Wednesday. So we have been completing a myriad of chores. We kept the rental car for an extra few days but are now using the courtesy car from the marina.
We will head to Oswego, NY when we are able to leave and then cross Lake Ontario to Picton, Ontario which is a small town west of Kingston.
More on our route back to FL in future postings.
