Fourteen bucks to stay in the most charming canal town ever? I call that a deal!
Fairport N.Y., our sixth stop on the Erie Canal at Mile Marker 246, was the best yet. This town is built around the canal and makes the best of its waterfront. This is also where we met our first of 16 lift bridges that will need to open for us before we reach Buffalo. Locks are still opening for us, too. We went through five more locks in our 38-mile cruise from Clyde to Fairport, including the roughest ones we’ve seen yet. (That makes 31 locks on the canal so far; just four more to go.)
For our $14, we got electricity and water and one of the easiest places to climb on and off the boat. We chummed around with other Loopers and explored the town. This is a place I could stay for a few days. Photos and captions of Many Moons‘ 7th day on the Erie Canal and 316th day on The Great Loop, below.

Sorry I got behind in keeping up on your posts. My friend Ellen Coyne (retired Navy, USNA classmate & roommate) lives in Fairport on the canal. She would have hosted you. You went right by her house! Oh well. Next time!!! :-).

You do have a life, after all. 😉 It would have been something to meet her at Fairport. But we were moving through the Erie Canal pretty quickly. A little too quickly for my taste, but had a schedule to keep!
