Matt finally got up and showered. Then he decided he wanted to try on all the new clothes from yesterday. "I might want to wear some of them," he said. I sit relaxed, watching the train tracks outside the window. Yep, he liked the new old-worn-out looking jeans and pronounced himself Ready To Go.
Pt Defiance Park
Not too crowded yet, we pay the fee and start to check it out. Inside the old-timey store, we learn about the fur traders, the Hudson Bay Company, the way of life back then. Children's toys, musical instruments, entertainment, food, clothing, and the all-important security issues. Same things we think about today! In the gift shop, we study all the trinkets there. I settled on an orangey-apricot bar of soap, with a twine-ribbon bow. Matt chose a bag of marbles, hey, that's what your great-grandpas used to play with, I said.
