Family Vacation

we are on a boat trip down the Erie Canal

Hawina piloted the boat most of today

Our boat has a pirate flag flying

Willow handles the ropes when we are going thru the locks

My mother is reading Water for Elephants on this trip

Besides the locks, there are a number of lift bridges that have to raise for us

The locks lift us up the whole way to Niagara Falls

We pass all manner of boats, and some pass us

Willow is studying his chess game to play his half brother Fabian next summer

We visited the Reptile Guys

Giant Pixie Frog photo for Sara

We are reminded of other family adventures - Amsterdam 2008

        i see your hands in hers, and in her face is that same loving care and interest for this world, the curiosity and wanting to reach out to the world, to make a difference, to get involved. and the love that stands behind all that
