To participate in the Saturday Snapshot meme post a photo that you (or a friend or family member) have taken then leave a direct link to your post in the Mister Linky: http://athomewithbooks.net/. Photos can be old or new, and be of any subject as long as they are clean and appropriate for all eyes to see. How much detail you give in the caption is entirely up to you. Please don’t post random photos that you find online.
While in Buffalo, N.Y. to attend my wife’s niece’s high school graduation we did a side trip to Lockport and toured the Lockport Cave and experienced the underground boat ride. We rode also the Erie Canal cruise boat and saw how the Erie Canal Locks work, a miniature Panama Canal. From the locks our cruise boat went further downstream and passed under a bridge that was raised vertically instead of breaking and dividing in half.
Now the bridge was raised.
On this trip I finished reading an interesting book, A Novel Bookstore, by Laurence Cossé, written in French originally. The story is about good novels and about a bookstore named The Good Novel. It’s a love story and a little bit of a mystery.
Today I started reading a non-fiction book, the demon and the angel, Searching for the Source of Artistic Inspiration by Edward Hirsch.
