We had a day taking care of business which included changing the oil, buying food, and setting up some of our electronic systems – a nice day relaxing. Also, the wind was blowing at 35 knots so it was a good day to do our work in port.
Today we had two locks, two lift bridges, and two lakes to experience and it was a beautiful day after the low blew through. The 2 locks dropped us 42 feet each. There are just 2 more to go before Montreal. The St. Lawrence has two lakes along its course. They open up to about 4-5 miles wide in each of them. There are a lot of homes along the lake and since this was Saturday, there were a lot more people out in their boats. We waited for a while to get into the lock and galley mate Marg served caesar salad and penne primavera with grilled chicken and sauteed red pepper, tomato, and garlic – worth waiting for any day!
