The DeWitt Clinton was working in Hulberton today when the Corning Museum Glass Barge passed by.  The barge was being pushed by a tug from the South Street Seaport Museum.  Its next stop is Brockport.

A group of bicyclists from Connecticut and Kentucky stopped to meet Tug DeWitt.  They are on vacation traveling the length of the Erie Canal and stopping in small canal towns along the way.

And here is the Lois McClure passing by Tug DeWitt.  This schooner is a replica of an 1862 canal sailing boat.  It is part of the Lake Champlain Maritime Museum and is accompanying the Corning Glass Barge on its journey across the canal.

Who would have thought so much was going on in the little hamlet of Hulberton on a Monday?
