On 29 May 2009 Wayne County Life experienced an Erie Canal Cruise aboard the Emita II, skippered by Captain Dan Wiles.  The cruise departed from Macedon Landing in Macedon, New York and navigated through Erie Canal Lock 30 to Palmyra. During the cruise Captain Dan told stories of Erie Canal History, adding in a bit of humor and pointing out historical structures which remain to this day.

A most incredible experience offered by cruising the Erie Canal is the opportunity to pass through a lock chamber, which in the early days of the Erie Canal was considered to be an engineering marvel ahead of its time. For any who have not yet passed through an Erie Canal lock by boat, Wayne County Life encourages you to do so before another year passes--a goal for your 1-year "Wayne County To-Do" list.
