So let’s start with June 2014 at the north end of the Oswego Canal . . . that’s Kathy Lynn way in the distance to the left.

Port of Oswego also sees its share of international tugs . . . Wilf Seymour (ex-M. Moran) here with the multifunctional barge Alouette Spirit is Canadian.

Many thanks to Paul Strubeck, the photographer of the photo above.  All others are by Will Van Dorp.

Just a note . . . some of my posts are “text light” this summer because those are assembled as I travel with an aging laptop that is increasing out of touch with the WordPress software.  I’m investigating an iPad upgrade and welcome input on dealing with what I understand as an inability to download camera photos of iPad.

Also, if anyone along the Oswego or Erie Canals reads this and got photos this week of Cheyenne with two scows, please share them with me?
