Well, these are the vacation posts that never end!
But this is the last one. I ended up with bunch of random photos, so I'll just explain what needs explaining in the photo captions.
|As soon as we reached the water front at Lake George, Biscuit spotted |
a fire boat and police boat. And of course has asked for pictures of both.
|The water in the lake was cold, and I expected |
Biscuit to hesitate. But he didn't. He walked right in.
|As usual, Biscuit found a new friend right away. Jeff had changed into |
his bathing suit so he could go in with Biscuit. But when he saw that
wouldn't be necessary, he found a not-so-cold spot at the top of the beach.
|My little ham wanted to pose for me. He loved the camera when he was |
really little. Then he started to shy away. And now he's back to loving it again.
|Sometimes you see a sign and wonder, |
"Shouldn't some things be common sense?"
|I'm not sure who Thaddeus Kosciuszko is, but I really like his bridge.|
|This sign was in the bathroom at an outdoor restaurant |
in a touristy area. I think their sign is pretty clear.
|There were bears, and there was a camera.|
|I walked into this bathroom and thought I had turned into a |
vampire! I couldn't see my reflection in the mirror! It took me a
good five or so seconds to realize there wasn't a mirror there.
|Jeff tries to look mean on our convertible outing.|
Jeff yelled out, "Post office?"
The guy said, "U-turn, first left, on your right."
"Thanks!" Jeff said. The guy waved. And that was it.
I said to Jeff, "Do you have any idea how long that would've taken in the South?"
It would've gone something like this:
"Excuse me, can you tell me where the post office is?"
"Well sure. First you'll need to do a u-turn. You can do it in that funeral home parking lot right over there. We were just there last night for calling hours. Anyway, once you get turned around, drive down the block until you get to that white brick building. It used to be a furniture store, but once Old Man Smith passed, and his children didn't want to take over, they turned it into a secondhand store. So you take a left right there and go about half a block, and the post office will be on the right. Are you from around here? ..."
So that was our trip. It was a lot of fun, and we saw places from Jeff's childhood and past that were really nice to see. And it's always good to catch up with family. Biscuit finds it really odd that all these people know so much about him, and he's not quite as familiar with them.
But as he gets older, he'll get it. And I hope he finds family as important as I do.
