Hudson River Celebration

Before i show the scenery and boats...i wanted to be sure that i had pictures of the people i was with. There were lots of scenery pictures in our house growing up, but not too many of the people looking at it!!! :o)
I can not get a serious face out of this child anymore. There is something about 7 that made her goofy. Every time i say let me take your picture she makes a goober face. Silly girl....now my mom is going to kill me for this next one.
But i took several and i really think they turned out well despite her hating every one. You look so dreamy mom!
And of course the true star of the show Sunday was this little lovey!! She is so delicious. She made a great test subject for the new camera. It went a little like, take a picture of a boat and the river, take ten of the baby!
oh now here are the boats....This year the area is celebrating the 400th anniversary of the Hudson river voyage on the ship Half Moon. So there was a big deal about the ship replicas coming up the river along with its accompanying flotilla.
There were several cool old ships. This fire boat was Mitchell's favorite...especially when they started spraying water everywhere to put on a show for the crowd.
This one is the Half Moon. We just wish it had gotten closer...i had to use the new zoom lens and then crop the picture to get something we could see well. So Happy 400th, you big dirty river!!
