I couldn't stand it anymore. Our streak of beautiful comfortable weather has just continued and continued. So, one day last week, we escaped for lunch and a trip to the locks. Where we live there is a man made canal. There's a beautiful area that is where the locks are and the gatehouse for the canal. It really is truly beautiful. There's a bike/walking trail that runs from the gatehouse to the end of the canal too. k We've never biked it all the way, but we have gone down some of it. It's truly gorgeous. The kids enjoyed being able to breathe fresh air and play on the playground and I loved the scenery.
