One of the many nice things about staying at the campground we are at right now, is that it's next to the Erie Canal. There is a very nice bike/walking trail next to the canal. The weather has been wonderful for walking. All of which makes me happy.
One of my kids even gave in to my pathetic begging to come and walk the path with me. I'll let you guess which one since I was not allowed to take pictures of that person even if they were kind enough to walk with me.
It is just so beautiful here. The perfect place to walk and see the area.
There is red rock along the shore of the canal.
And it is really educational. There is a long, interesting history to this canal. I already have a few books to dig into so we can learn some of that history. We might actually get to those books now that I'm taking a day's break from cooking to catch up on blogging and do some other things. In the meantime here is an overview of this fun place: New York State Canals
"Our aim in education is to give a full life. We owe it to them to initiate an immense number of interests. Life should be all living, and not merely a tedious passing of time; not all doing or all feeling or all thinking - the strain would be too great - but, all living; that is to say, we should be in touch wherever we go, whatever we hear, whatever we see, with some manner of vital interest."
