Still in Little Falls

06 September 2008 | Little Falls, NY
Wet, Rainy 70s
Woke up to the patter of raindrops at 5 am and ran around the boat in the dark closing all the ports and hatches. It looks like the remnants of Tropical Storm Hannah have caught up to us so we stayed put today. Why go stand in the rain and fight the slippery ropes in the locks if there's no real hurry...

Walked into Little Falls with our rain slickers on (yep out walking in the rain) and went to the Post Office (Hannah - watch for the mail), Farmers Market, Bank, and Grocery store. Got another better picture of a train for Blade but still not with the engine.

Wet, gloomy day but with power - I got the chance to work on uploading pictures to the website. For those wondering why I'm not in the pictures? I'm taking them J
Can't wait to get the sails back up! Bill your comment cracked both of us up. Ahhhh I can feel the gentle winds now Ha Ha Ha

There's a fisherman outside our boat (3 actually). I told him we get every third one and he said we wouldn't want them - mercury poison, and a host of other things are in the canal. He called what they were doing a "certain type" of fishing, which I took offense at and told him I didn't think fish could be "ignorant". It went over his head. I hate when people use racial terms, be they white, black, or green... I came back in and want nothing to do with him...

Oh hey - my cell phone works - Nathan called earlier - and left a message so I tried calling him back (one of my favorite students). I think Allie was there too (another favorite) but she didn't say anything. Hope they're doing well and in college now!!! Allie has a terrific eye - wish I could take pictures like she does... Oh well... Enough - lets see if I can get my pages uploaded... Called Steph - JESSE's playing football tonight!!! Wow - go Jesse!
