The dinner cruise to end all 

Well we splurged this year for July 4th , as soon as I knew it wasn’t going to rain, because we have seen our share this summer, nothing but rain and colder than usual summer. Anyway, the reason we took this kind of expensive dinner cruise, was to see the fire works in downtown Rochester,NY.  The tickets were 100.00 dollars apiece.  The cruise itself, was about 5 hours , we Are Not  nite people , and we felt it the next few days. The   Cruise started at 7pm and we didn’t return till 12:30 am. A very long trip.

as we left port, we are reminded how many low bridges we must  stay low for, and there were many!! i stayed below, till we got to the fireworks

we had to go through 2 locks  before leaving the canal, and entering the Genesee River, to head Downtown.

people love to watch the boats go through the lock system

well the ride home was cold and uneventful, except for some crazy people who were out in their little motor boats, trying to pass  the big boat,  so they could all get in the locks b4 us.

  1. I didn’t know you were a blogger. I have a blog but I havent touched it in about two years. It was all about Lacey, and Lacey is now in heaven. I’ll have to see if I can find it. I wonder if they delete the inactive ones.
