Cranberry Lake, ON to Pine Tree Island, NY.

We woke to mist on the water and tons of weed on the anchor which took me ten minutes with the boathook to remove. At the Upper Brewers lock we caught up with a Trojan 45 that we had seen on several other occasions and transited the rest of the locks with them all the way to Kingston. The rotund husband was quite talkative, but the wife, who may not have spoken English, was quiet and taciturn. We ate lunch in Kingston at Chez Piggy and then took the Canadian center channel to Boldt castle where we checked back into the US. Passing Wolfe Island gave us our first view of all the wind turbines and we were surprised by how many there were. We had had a great miniloop, but it was wonderful being back on a clean and peaceful Pine Tree Island.
