Heading to "The River"--Makes My Monday

We headed 2 hours due north Sunday to attend my nephew's graduation party from highschool.
That fun will get its own post, but on the way home we took a 15 minute drive for a great little side trip.
We headed over the St. Lawerence River on the 1000 Island Bridge.
The kids were absolutely thrilled for this unexpected fun.
At the top of the bridge, overlooking a few of the 1000 Islands and the St. Lawerence River.
Can you say GORGEOUS!!

Gracie just loved this bench :-)
"How big is your wingspan?"

Amy made a new friend.

There were quite a few nesting pairs of ospreys---nesting of the electric poles.

If you live in our part of the country there is only one "river". You head up to "the river" in the summer. My Miami nieces are visiting for a few weeks and they were puzzled when we would refer to "the river". As Amanda stated, "There are a lot of rivers, Aunt Joann." But we corrected her, "There is only one "river" in our neck of the woods!"
And it is beautiful!!
Join the fun with Makes My Monday over at Twinfatuation.
