After a long hiatus that included a visit home to see grand children, we are back onboard and loving the Triangle Loop adventure. The triangle starts at Brewerton, NY and heads north to Oswego and Lake Ontario. From there, head NE to the St. Lawrence River. The journey continues through Montreal (with a long stop for some croissants) to Sorel, Quebec, and thence south through the historic Chambly Canal, Lake Champlain and Waterford, NY, at which point we turn west into the Erie Canal and back to Brewerton.
The Oswego Canal was built shortly after the Erie Canal to help with transporting goods and people from the popular Erie route north to Lake Ontario. The towns along the way are great places to visit and the townspeople love to receive cruising visitors. As you head north from the Erie, eight locks lower boats from the inland heights to the level of Lake Ontario.
