When we leave around 9:00 we have a boat waiting to take our spot. We have 6 locks to do today to get us to Fort Edwards. Fort Edwards has a free town wall with power and is a favorite stop along the Champlain Canal.

On the way back through town we discover a new Brew Pub that opened last winter and it is quite busy. Nice to see this activity in this downtown that previously always looked deserted.
