I was driving when we got to this one so I did the driving; TQ has a little more motorboat handling experience than me so I was tempted to hand over the helm to him and go handle lines, but I was actually looking at this trip as a good chance to get more experience for myself, and at some point I was going to be driving into my first lock, so heck, I went with it. My approach was not a thing of beauty, this being our first lock we didn't have a sense of the time it would take for the lockmaster to be ready for us, so instead of approaching juussst fast enough to maintain steerage, I drove up to the waiting area and then stopped and then had to do a couple of circles to stay in place. I got better at that as we went along, we did end up a good job of taking turns doing things, which was pretty much what I'd wanted.
We got to Seneca Falls around 5, found ourselves a spot on the town wall, sorted out our storage a little better and then fixed our first dinner on the boat, steak and potatoes and squash.
