Day138. June 6

Left Kingston early morning and traveled the Hudson  and then started the Erie Canal.  Stopped in Schenectady, NY.  Went thru 7 locks by ourselves one after the other.  We were lucky.  Total raise was over 200 ft.  We passed some unique lighthouses . Traveled 69   miles and took us 10 hrs for a long day.
Thomas Edison started his electricity here in 1898.  New York City had the first electricity by GE
