July 9 –
Left Bonnie Castle Marina and crossed the east end of Lake Ontario
back to Oswego, this time docking at Oswego International Marina.
Met Loopers here, with whom we had a nice dinner, talking all the
while about our experiences. Waved goodbye the next day as we headed
for Shumway Marina in Rochester, NY. The washing machine that was
new last August was on the fritz; same problem that it had in March
while we were still in Florida, which meant replacing the whole computer
control panel, again. Unfortunately, the repair tech in Oswego didn’t
have the part, so it was supposed to be repaired here in Rochester.
The appointment was made and part ordered, or so we thought. We were
delayed here because one whole day was spent trying to straighten
out that mess, and then windy, rough conditions on the lake developed
the next day. Finally left 3 days later with the promise from Sears
that the washing machine part would be sent to Erie, PA. Water depth
of 350’ was noted in this lake.
