its net of wonder forever."—Jacques Cousteau

“When we love, we always strive to become better than we are. When we strive to become better than we are, everything around us becomes better too.” —Paulo Coelho

We had some special visitors on The Pearl this past week. Kyle came up from Pennsylvania on Friday with Graham and Cora. It was fun having them onboard. We spent Friday afternoon at the Ithaca Sciencenter since the weather was a little threatening. It was a fun place that Graham truly enjoyed. 

Saturday we visited the Ithaca Farmers Market and did a short (3/4 of a mile) hike up to Taughannock Falls. It was a very easy trail but a little more of a workout with two kids in tow. It's fun to watch, and listen, to Graham...he really takes in everything around him. Seeing things through the eyes of a child is amazing. After lunch Kyle and Cora went home and we got to have Graham for a few more days. 

Graham loves the boat...he's very inquisitive and wanted to know how everything worked. We truly enjoyed every minute of his visit and look forward to having him onboard again.

Taughannocks Falls has a drop of 215' and is one of the tallest waterfalls east of the Rockies. It is taller than Niagara Falls.
