ALBION – A canal boat named Canandaigua was out cruising on the Erie Canal today. I was driving along Presbyterian Road at the widewaters section when I spotted the boat at about 11:30 a.m.

I then hustled to the Presbyterian Road bridge to get the boat approaching.

Here the boat passes by the bridge and heads east towards Eagle Harbor.

A woman on the boat told me it was an “absolutely gorgeous day” to be out on the canal.

Today will be sunny with a high of 74 degrees, according to the National Weather Service in Buffalo. More sunny days are in the forecast.

Thursday will be mostly sunny with a high of 72 degrees, followed by a mostly sunny Friday with a high of 74 degrees. The weekend will also be sunny with a high of 72 on Saturday and 74 on Sunday.
