August 7, 2013 - Part 1

We spent this morning riding the Downeast Scenic Railroad with a group of homeschoolers.  In addition to riding in train cars built in the early 1900s, we got to watch the engine move on the switch track from the front of the train to the back (which then became the front) for the return trip home.  We also got a glimpse of a beaver lodge and an eagle's nest, with its presumable residents gliding above it, in the wetlands area we crossed.  The highlight for the kids, though, seemed to be waving to the vehicles who had to stop for us at the road crossings.  :)
