Where's Eli - Day 10 - The End is Near
Today's journey began at Lock 25 and will end at Lock 34, if all goes well. The final lock on the Erie Canal is Lock 35 which put Captain Eli and Mate Graham into Lake Erie and hopefully they make Detroit by nightfall. From Detroit, they will check into Port Heron on Lake Heron to clear Canadian Customs. Captain Eli has found that going through the canal system brings lots of folks with lots of questions. The locks themselves are a bit of an attraction and when a breathtaking boat, like the Sabre, go through, it draws lots of attention and questions. The people that they have met are friendly and welcoming.
Bring on Lake Erie!
