St. Lawrence Seaway
Did You Know? - The Saint Lawrence Seaway (St. Lawrence Seaway), in French: la Voie Maritime du Saint-Laurent, is the common name for a system of locks, canals and channels that permits ocean-going vessels to travel from the Atlantic Ocean to the North American Great Lakes, as far as Lake Superior. Legally it extends from Montreal to Lake Erie, including the Welland Canal. The seaway is named after the Saint Lawrence River, which it follows from Lake Ontario to the Atlantic Ocean. This section of the seaway is not a continuous canal, but rather comprises stretches of navigable channels within the river, a number of locks, as well as canals made to bypass rapids and dams in the waterway. A number of locks are managed by the Canadian Saint Lawrence Seaway Management Corporation and others by the U.S. Saint Lawrence Seaway Development Corporation.
Another Crystal adventure we flew to new York spending several days again visiting the city... We are getting to know it pretty well by now!
After joining the ship we went to Boston, Maine, and then several breath-taking days down the seaway seeing the local communities, fall colors, and a lot of history.
We, of course, visited Canada and toured the cities flying back home from Toronto.
This picture is of another TALL structure which I had to go up in with Sue. Even with my fear of heights, I followed her to the top and tried NOT to look down!
