Prompt: Eerie

Low Bridge

Sure, you all know about the Erie Canal, connecting Lake Erie and Hudson Bay. But nobody talks much anymore about the Eerie Canal. Runs from wherever you are right now, all the way to nobody-knows-where. It’s always deserted as far as the eye can see, save for your own vessel, and perhaps an old, decrepit, half-sunk barge tied up on the bank a hundred yards off. Yet its very emptiness becons, and you’re curious about the twinkling lights that dance in the distance, just barely visible.

But beware! Many journey, but none has returned!

Well, except Larry.
