Today we took a 8 hour train ride out through Agawa Canyon. We had terrific seats and huge windows to watch out of. We passed the miles, yes miles, by playing some cards and schoolwork. The train system uses miles and not kilometers in Canada. We all took turns swapping seats to change up the view.
I enjoyed watching the front of the train when we took turns. There was also a monitor so we could watch the view out of the front of the train. Periodically a bell would sound and videos with historical information and scenes would play on the screen. It was very educational.
I was in a mood most of the day because I fell behind in my journal again and I had to play catchup. I eventually got it done and all caught up but Mom was convinced I might get left in the canyon.
I found an amazing caterpillar! We all had fun taking photos of it.
We hiked out to the waterfalls. It was very pretty. You can only access this area via the train so it was very quiet.
Back on the train and time for a late lunch. I had packed a sandwich because I saw the menu the day before and didn’t think I’d eat anything. We had some treats from the snack car too.
When we got back from the trip we swam for a few hours. Tomorrow it is supposed to rain most of the day so we are getting out last bit of fun in now.
