ALBION – I heard the bell on the Main Street lift bridge a little after 9 this morning and headed out the door with my camera, just in time to get this boater passing underneath the bridge, working his way westward with his dog as a companion.There are 16 lift bridges along the canal, and Orleans County has seven of them. There are four in Niagara County and five in Monroe.
