Pittsford Town Dock 1

Clyde to Pittsford, NY.

Rain started at 0400 hrs and fell steadily as we cruised slowly to Lyons, NY arriving at 0945 hrs. We walked around the town in full foul weather gear, checking out the old hardware store, reached through a short corridor from Main Street and sporting a beautiful old tin ceiling, and the charming Dobbins drugstore across the road.  We made good use of the free showers in the Fire Station next to the dock and then headed for nearby Miller’s Marina to get gas. Cash only (thank goodness for ATMs), containing ethanol, and a decrepit dock, but gas! The fuel-flow meter had been correct; we had 14 gallons remaining. It rained again most of the way to Palmyra, making Mary’s job at the bow in the locks quite unpleasant, but the rain stopped for us to walk around the town. Palmyra has a beautiful small free marina just off the canal and a lovely old Main Street. We bought some groceries and then cruised on through intermittent rain to Pittsford. As we cruised through Newark admiring the murals on the bridge, we noticed the CD 22 Fun Patrol moored at the town dock. Just before Pittsford we met several boats from the Pittsford Rowing Club out practicing despite the weather. Mary made another tasty dinner, and we ran the heater for the first time to take off the chill of a cold evening.
