Canal Day

Yesterday was Canal Day in our neck of the woods. We’re lucky to live within walking distance of one of the few working locks in PA, located along the Schuylkill River. K and I strolled over to partake of the festivities. We left Pablo at home since the weather was on the humid side and on Saturday, when we tried to take him on a hiking trail, he lasted all of a dozen steps before turning around and hightailing it to the truck. Oh, well, there’s no arguing with a pug.

At Canal Day we did meet this little beauty. She obligingly stopped to pose for her picture.

Then we saw a demonstration of the lock opening.

The day ended with a log joust as contestants battled to  stay out of the muddy canal water. I did my best, but I couldn’t convince K to enter. Maybe next year.

  1. Welcome to Philadelphia 🙂 So glad to see another pug around these parts. My “SousPug” and I live in Manayunk.
