And from another point it was just as beautiful.
Then we went up a hill and around a bend and (now Pea, this is especially for you) Fairy Lake. There was also a Fairy Street in Huntsville.
There is also a playground there to keep the kids busy while they are waiting for the train.
Brandon asked me if we could sit on the swings while we waited and we did. We had a swing too.
Then he asked Mom to have a swing with him. Mom didn't swing very much, but Brandon enjoyed seeing both his Grandma and his Great-Grandma on the swing. We had a few laughs here.
There was information about the early days of logging in the area and it was quite interesting.
Now the conductor and engineer has arrived. The brakeman is in the jeans and jean jacket. They were all very nice to Brandon. These men are volunteers and I commend them for taking the time to talk to the kids and answer all of their questions. Brandon is a train buff and he had a million questions about the train.
This was an interesting display. Brandon couldn't believe that the women of that era wore these skirts and long-sleeved blouses. He looked at the trunks and the baggage carts. It was all very interesting.
Above is the water tank where they get the water for the little steam engine.
It is quite a beauty and well-maintained and cared for. This is the same train that drew logs, passengers and delivered mail between 1904 and 1959.
This little guy is posing with the conductor. I asked his father for permission to take the photo and most graciously consented. He was a fine Assistant Conductor.
Well, I'd best leave the rest of Day 2 until tomorrow. I didn't realize I had taken so many photos and our day had been so busy.
Enjoy your Friday. Yes, the weekend is here and this weekend it's Canadian Thanksgiving. Saturday dinner will be at Mom's and we are having turkey. Whoohoo!! That will be an opportunity for more photos. ~Blessings, Mary~
Jordan wanted to hold Tarryn and have his picture taken. He had some fun with both boys. Brandon didn't want his picture taken at the time, so I didn't force him. Melissa was teaching him how to do something on the computer.
I enjoyed the visit with all the kids. I held Griffyn and he offered to share his snack and his drink with me. I think Melissa is doing an excellent job with these boys who are only a year and one month apart. It can't be easy taking care of a 15 month old and a 2 month old.
As you read this, I am away with Brandon and Mom. We are going up north to see the autumn colors and Brandon and I are going to do a bit of fishing. I will be back Wednesday, but not sure what time. I have scheduled this to publish at 12:01 AM and hope it works.
Enjoy your week and enjoy the sights, sounds and fragrances of the season. ~Blessings, Mary~
