Erie Canal - Last Night at Waterford, NY – 6/5/06

Tonight really felt like a home away from home. Many Loopers, some who we have met along the way and a few new ones, organized a pot luck for tonight just to celebrate the beautiful day in an incredibly friendly town on the Erie Canal.

The volunteer harbormaster, Rob (the one who loves to kiss the women boaters hands) stayed late to make sure our evening was warm and welcome. He took the photos and passed out bookmarks with the words to the Erie Canal Song on it. He told us stories and he bid us goodnight and invited us all back to visit with him in the future. It is hard to express the warm and wonderful feeling we must all feel tonight as we turn to our boat to go to sleep while docked along the Erie Canal.
