On this day, there was a ribbon-cutting ceremony at Crescent Bar, celebrating the completion of several recreational improvement projects. We heard about it from our local newspaper, and we expected more of a crowd than we found.

As a family, we were focused on the child-centered events, so we didn’t watch the actual ribbon-cutting. Eric did attend a short lecture by one of his favorite geologists, Nick Zentner. The area has a rich geological history. Check out the website: .

Meanwhile, Todd and I hung out at the beach. Todd enjoyed some wading and found another child willing to share his water shooter (i.e., squirt gun).

Next, we located the “Jolly Trolley,” which reminded us of the trolley in the show, Daniel Tiger’s Neighborhood. The driver took us on a short loop. The ride was free on this day!

Finally, we headed for the pontoon boat. Todd tripped on the dock and bloodied his knee a little. Aboard the vessel, he wasn’t thrilled about having to wear a life jacket (hence, no smile in the first picture). Nonetheless, the (free) ride was a real treat!! The boat captain took us on a complete loop around Crescent Bar island.

The boat cruised right where we played last year with my sister and Todd’s cousins. See post, “Todd the Two Year Old (Month 11) (Part 1)” for the pictures from Crescent Bar in July 2017.

At about 3:30 p.m., we headed for home, but first made one more stop: Wine tasting at White Heron Cellars. We love this special place in the world! See post, “Evening at White Heron Cellars (Quincy, WA)” (from August 2017).
