Welcome to Buffalo

The Reef Warriors splashed into Buffalo on Friday and had a great time.

A baker’s dozen of us met at Riverworks and put in to the Buffalo River for an adventure.

 

The crew paddled to the west along the Buffalo River.

Made a stop at the oldest working fire boat-the Edward M. Cotter.

Continued along the river past Canalside and the Naval Park.

And on to the entrance to the Niagara River at the Buffalo Light.

Then we headed back toward Riverworks and continued along the historic Buffalo River and the original terminus of the  Erie Canal.

After 3 hours of fun on the water, in true Reef Warrior style, we hit the bar and feasted at Riverworks (can anyone say TaterTot Poutine?)

Leaving da’Reef was tough but having the opportunity to explore new waterways in our own backyard was worth it.

Here is a link to all Lou and Gail’s photos:
