And another family tradition in the can for this year! The annual Tugboat Roundup at Lock 2 in Waterford, NY, is always a good day. I swear there were more boats this year than last. We missed the Farmer’s Market part of the deal… that was up by the lock itself, and with Mom still using the walker, and Meriah not wearing appropriate foot gear… we stuck to the lower park. Nick got some really good photos… and some I wish he hadn’t…I do NOT take great candid shots. Takes a lot of people and a lot of work to put things like this together, and I applaud them all! This area has a rich heritage and interesting history, and it’s wonderful when such is preserved and shared with younger generations.
It turned out to be a dry day… they weren’t sure we wouldn’t get a thunderstorm or two, but we didn’t. Of course, I was dripping sweat, walking around. Hopefully, I was sweating off some pounds in the process! Meriah is now napping, Mom just woke up, and I feel like I may nod off next. At least no sunburns!
And on to the next traditional outing… the Guptil’s Flea Market! That’s September 17th.
