Nice day for a paddle
This afternoon I took my kayak to the Erie Canal and paddled for awhile. It was too nice a day not to get out and do something fun.
I put in at the launch next to Clover Street and paddled toward Pittsford.
Many towns and villages along the Erie Canal have capitalized on the canal as a recreational and tourist attraction. Pittsford is one example. Here you see people just enjoying being out, feeding the ducks, or riding bikes on the bike path that runs along the north side of the canal. That big round tower in the background used to be a coal tower. Now it is home to the Coal Tower Restaurant, a great place to go for breakfast or just to stop for a cup of coffee with a friend.
