A Change of Plans

We were planning on going on a short trip to Long Island to see some family. On the way I was going to visit with Dunja in CT. But all our plans fell through because of several complications. Anyway, my husband had scheduled a few days off from work...so we have been doing family things close by. On Wednesday we took a trip out to Beaver Lake Nature Center near Syracuse.
We did a 3 mile hike around the Lake, had a picnic lunch and also went canoeing for an hour. I didn't take any pictures of us canoeing because I was paranoid that the camera would end up in the Lake...so I locked it in the car during that. Now I kind of regret it...but atleast my camera is safe and sound.


It was a pretty cool place to go. They have a nature building that has a bunch of stuffed and mounted animals in glass cases for people to look at. They also have a bird observing room. It was all very informative and educational.


I think it was worth the trip. They have guided canoe trips to see beaver habitats and other programs that we didn't sign up for. I think it would be particularly interesting and beautiful to go there in the autumn when all the leaves are at their peak.

Good shots. Sounds like a fun place to take kids too. They sure look like they are growing!!

Alwys planned to go when the kids were smaller but never made it. Been past it a couple hundred times...

PS. James did say we could take Sherman if you couldn't find anyone else... but I think you were supposed to be here for some reason.

We'll have to go there some time too. The kids are definitely growing. You better come over before they're all growed up.

That does sound interesting and looks like you had a nice trip.

That kind of vacation is a nice change. Maybe not a big change for you, but nice for the kids, i bet.
