Day 11 - Rochester to Sodus Point, 54 miles

It rained all night and right up until we left.   The weather report forecast rain all day but we only had a few sprinkles here and there.  However, the roads and trails were wet all day. 

We rode the canal trail as far as Palmyra and then took Rt21 north.  21 had decent shoulders to ride most of the way to Lake Ontario.  Rt21 ended right at the lake cliff, and the sun made an appearance, giving us a fantastic view.  


We are staying at an AirBnB in Sodus Point.  We walked to the lighthouse that is out on a pier in the lake.  While we were out the clouds gathered and started raining once again so we got wet walking back to the BnB. 


After about 60 miles on the canal trail we reached the next lock!  Lock 33. Lock 32 was just a quarter mile away. 

The canal has a number of guard locks which can be used to drain sections of the canal quickly.

Good-bye Erie Canal - hello Lake Ontario !
