Friday,finally we are visiting family. The weather cooperated and it was a really nice drive.

Friday, May 11, 2012

Today we are in Plattsburgh visiting Son and DIL and our grandkids.
It was a long drive it took us around 7 hours to get there. We have to have frequent stops to stretch my legs.
We did not take he ferry we arrived at the busy time. There used to be 3 Ferries but one had to go further down the lake because a bridge collapsed and they needed the ferry in the southern area.

We opted to drive up to the Canadian border and south to Plattsburgh. That added another hour to the journey but we are here and I am happy.

I told the kids i needed a walk and they both walked with me, it was so nice just the three of us chatting and walking.

I felt so tiny our 14 year old Grandson is 6'2" and our Grand- daughter is my height. Walking between the two of them was quite different to when I held their hands and looked down at them.
I only have a few days here and I am determined to make the most of my time.

Hugs Pat in Maine. emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon
