On September 14, 2020, the Here’s To Us!! crew is cruising from the Visitor Center in Waterford, New York over to Donovan’s Mohawk Marina in Schenectady, New York.

Schenectady, New York

Sam and I spent a few days in Schenectady last time through and enjoyed it so much that we decided to stay a few days this time, too.

Plus, it was Sam’s birthday and his last birthday on the loop was one we wanted to forget (lost the bow thruster in a lock)!

So, we left Waterford and immediately went through Lock 2.

Now these first few locks are really close together so you don’t have a lot of time to get comfortable before you go through another.

Boom. Boom. Boom.

The first trip through here, we didn’t get to stay at the Visitor Center in Waterford.

The wall was packed out!

We went from Albany all the way to Schenectady (read about it) or listen to us talk about it here.

Talk about a long day!

This time we were taking it slow.

And going through six locks, there really isn’t any other way.
