its net of wonder forever."—Jacques Cousteau

Getting around to blogging gets difficult when you stay busy and on the go. We enjoyed Friday in Ithaca getting to know our dock mates and taking in a little of the annual Ithaca Festival...arts and crafts, food, music and a parade. Ithaca is a real eclectic town, so people watching is definitely a fun activity. People watching at the evening parade was more fun than the parade itself, but we gave up before the parade ended so we could have a nice dinner at Maxie's. Everyone we've met in town has recommended it and it didn't disappoint. It's definitely a place we'll go back to.

On Saturday we drove down to Pennsylvania to celebrate our daughter in law and grandson's birthdays. What a celebration...taco night complete with a fire pit for roasting marshmallows on Saturday to celebrate with Bryt and a cute Bob the Builder party on Sunday to celebrate Graham's 3rd birthday…lots of food and fellowship...what a great weekend. 

Now we are back in Texas for a week visiting family and checking on things here. More blog updates when we retain to The Pearl.
