You meet the best folks at a MythBusters event. We ran into former co-worker @BethMazur in line for the Behind the Myths tour show. Robert talked Sarah into getting him a tee shirt during the intermission. It was a lot of fun even if we were up high in the stands.

Along with the canoeing and camping, there was a lot of Lego playing going on. Including an outdoor installation. More photos in the vacation section.

We joined Steve, Helen and Aaron for trip around Merchant’s Millpond. They had taken a guided tour the day before and served as excellent guides. There was a really big pine tree out there somewhere with an eagle’s nest in it. We manged to find it pretty directly — which astounded me as it was very hard to keep a straight line with all the cypress trees.

When we realized we were actually trying to get somewhere rather than just paddling around, Steve jumped ship to come and paddle in our canoe as Robert is still a bit small to be really effective. (And not, yet, very interested in being an effective paddler.)

We found the tree and the nest was empty. But we saw the eagle a little ways further on as we were heading back towards the car. Fortunately it’s not huge and there are some canoe trails marked out with buoys. Of course, we were off those trails most of the time. Keeping the shore on our left helped to make sure we had a vague clue where we were.

While Sarah is slaving away at her job, Robert and I headed down to a state park in NC to meet up with Steven, Helen and Aaron. In addition to enjoying the camping (and some of the canoing), Robert really enjoyed the lunch dessert: dark chocolate covered orange peel sandwiched between mint Oreos…
