This is my travel journal from a yacht delivery trip of the Motor/Yacht (M/Y) Odyssey, a 75 foot Lazzara, which started in Fort Lauderdale, Florida and ended in Bay Harbor, Michigan.- Carla
I have switched my blog post titles to reflect the places that we dock at each night on this journey. For those of you just stumbling on my blog, we started this yacht delivery in Ft. Lauderdale and will end it at Bay Harbor, MI.
Last night, we stopped in Troy, New York at the same place we docked at 2 years ago with the Wombat. Joe, the dockmaster, is a real nice guy, and he was kind to offer us the use of his car to provision if need be. He did this, too, last time we were there.
We decided to top off the fuel, so we only picked up a small amount compared to the usual. How would you like to pay this bill?:
The town of Troy was having a late night art fair, so I took advantage to shop after we ate dinner. I picked up some yarn, 2 new books, and a Brown Brewing Co. t-shirt for my husband, Joe. We always eat at this brew pub, which has terrific food.
Btw, for all you history buffs, the legend of Uncle Sam originated in Troy. I like this mural on the side of the building next to the brewery:
As I mentioned, we now start up the locks. This is really interesting, at least for the first few locks, then it becomes routine. By the 40th lock, we are groaning inside, “Not another blasted lock!” LOL
