Left Little Falls, NY in the morning and passed by the town of Herkimer, NY known for its Herkimer diamonds which are actually quartz crystals. You can go to the mines and actually mine a few diamonds yourself. I stopped at Ilion Marina for fuel, pump-out (holding tank) and water. The Marina has a nice water front area and a snack bar with good food.
All but two of the RVs in the photo are seasonal occupants. Lots of geese help fertilize the grassy area. I have burned 17 gallons of diesel fuel since leaving Mallets Bay, VT. I continued along the canal heading west and passed through locks 18, 19, 20. I stopped at the town dock in Rome, NY for the night.

Passed by Utica, NY and tied up at the public dock in Rome, NY. The top of the water tower lights up at night in different colors. Welcome Center; Sunrise to greet the day.
