Vacation, the rest of it, mostly

Yeah, okay, I'm not going to bore you guys forever.  I'll try to get this wrapped up in the next couple of days. 

On one day I decided to paddle to Hiawatha Island in Owego.  This is how me and the kayak travel:

What?  It fits.  IT FITS!

Heading across the river to the island:

At one time back in the 1800s there was a big hotel on the island.  After that it was farmed for many years.  The remains of some of the old buildings are still there.

Along with old farm equipment.

I wonder whatever happened to Ann O'Rourke and Lorrie Glosick?:

Bald eagles nest on the island:

and there's lots of other wildlife:

The Hiawatha muck monster slimed me, but it was worth it.

Amazing that Ann and Lorrie didn't get crowded out or written over, even though they seem to be one of the oldest autographs there.
