Adventures in Wood

This weekend Erie hosted a Tall Ships Festival with six tall ships arriving and docking in our port for 4 days. They were a marvelous sight and thousands came to see them, go on board and just enjoy the uniqueness of their sails, their history and their majesty.

This shot of "The Bounty" was taken through our library's windows as we approached it.

Down at our Glinodo Center, volunteers from Wayside Presbyterian Church came and watersealed the deck outside the Big House--Tekakwitha. This social service group offers their elbow grease to outdoor projects such as ours.

And, on the same day, a local Eagle Scout candidate organized a crew to replace the foot bridge that leads to our hermitages. Here's before...

And here's after.
