Fulton to Oswego, July 13th
Is that a waterfall I'm heading for? Oh Dam! Really. Where's the lock? Oh yes,
it's over there on the right.
Dam Lock 6. These markers aren't kidding when they say "Dam Ahead".
Locking down to Lake Ontario
Port of Oswego, Oswego Lighthouse and Lake Ontario
Looking South at Oswego from Lake Ontario, Looking West toward the Oswego power plant.
It was a bit choppy (3'-4') out in the lake this day. The crew had trouble
holding camera level! Looking East toward a nuclear power plant on Lake Ontario.
The water is multiple colors. Lighthouse with multicolored water.
After taking a quick excursion into Lake Ontario, we docked at the
Oswego International Marina. There is a maritime museum within an easy walk.
The white building houses a museum, and an army tug is located next to it. Both
can be toured for a small fee. A restored army tug.
On the hill is Fort Ontario, The earthen berms protecting the Fort, An interior
The view from the Fort looking East, Some cannon balls, Some cannons along the
western wall of the Fort.
For dinner, John recommended the Captain's Table. There was a Captain's
Lounge and a Captain's Galley but no Captain's Table that we could find,
so we tried the Captain's Galley on the East side of the canal and were
not disappointed. After dinner, we returned to the boat to see a beautiful
sunset. The boat in the next slip was trying to see a "green flash" which is
supposed to happen on a clear night right as the sun sets. I guess there
were too many clouds this night to see it.
