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

i love the picture of your mom. so exciting to see you in her.
i am curious what you see of me in her.
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
