|Hydrophilic at Waterford Dock|
It was another bright and sunny morning as we left Shady Harbor and headed north on the Hudson to Waterford, the start of the Erie Canal. Before Albany, there is much industrial activity on the waterfront. Remember that we saw the work on the new Tappan Zee bridge and saw the barge with one of the blue spans on it? Well, today we saw all spans lined up ready to be placed on barges.
The town was an easy walk. It has many parks on the water, including a Soldiers and Sailors Memorial.
Tomorrow, we will go through at least 5 locks and maybe more.
