Today was a PD Day for Susannah, which left the whole day feeling like a Saturday. We pottered about this morning doing various things...then this afternoon we headed to Katies Crossing to meet up with homeschool friends for ice cream and a walk. Oh...and some photo taking ;)
We watched a few trains go by, and then J decide that squashing some pennies on the track would be a good idea!
It was amazing being sooooo close to the tracks as the train went by. The ground under our feet SHOOK and you could feel the breeze from it - which J renames 'Train farts' for the kids :)
We ended up with quite a few flattened pennies and dimes etc...
This train wasn't moving and was just sat there on the bridge, which was a great opportunity to get up close with a train:
Abby hanging out while S and J looked for the flattened pennies and at various rocks lying around:
There was some standing water by the train, that had frozen! Yikes..Winter is on it's way!
This is one of the unusual rocks we found by the tracks:
