Brockport was a nice little town, with a city dock just alongside the canal. We didn’t explore very much – for some reason, I wasn’t feeling my best. We did ride our bikes to the drugstore, and a volunteer at the welcome center drove us to the grocery store for reprovisioning. So nice to be treated so nicely all along this route!

Another couple, from Maine, pulled in to dock there in a rented canal boat. They rented it for a week, just going up and down the Erie Canal. We had a nice evening at dinner with them. They were people that we feel like we could be really good friends if we lived closer or saw them more often.
