The Erie Canal

Williamson to Brighton

We had a very nice coffee and breakfast with Jim and Carol this morning. Carol hopped on my ebike and took a spin. Then we loaded up and headed for Palmyra and the Erie Canal!

On the way we passed this stone farm house. Joseph Smith worked here on the farm and wrote down inspired words that became the Book Of Mormon!

Sitting along the canal in Pittsford. I stopped at the bike shop and had my shifting adjusted. I bought a new helmet. My old one won't even stay on my head anymore! Maybe my head shrank!

We are at an AirBnB tonight just outside of Rochester. Michelle just got home from cycling in Scottland! We rode up to the supermarket to get some dinner first and it was an extra six miles. It was hot out and we were glad to get here and take a shower and cool off!
