Volga-Baltic Canal lock

The day’s cruising began early as we passed through the locks of the Volga-Baltic canals at 0400hrs. We entered the Onega Sea at about 0800hrs and at 1130hrs our group visited the bridge where we met the captain and his cat. We spent the day sailing north to Kizhi. Kizhi is an island famous for its wooden buildings and is an UNESCO World Heritage site. It was a day of no brilliant sunrises or sunsets
