The Locktender's House and Lock 11 were super interesting! I had no idea there were locks to ship goods up from the Philadelphia area up to the Easton area, passing through New Hope. I figured ships would've just used the Delaware River, but that was not the case. There is also a much greater change in elevation than I would've thought, necessitating the lock system. Currently it is a nice little bike path extending for a good number of miles. If I lived closer, I could see it being a place I regularly visited as it was calm and very picturesque!
