Getting ready to sign some books at “The Shed”

And what better way to let folks know you have a  new book out than to host a Book Launch party with the folks of the Ten Mile River Watershed Council?

Now that the book, Easy Walks and Paddles in the Ten Mile River Watershed is available, Easy_Walks_and_Paddl_Cover_for_Kindlewe wanted to celebrate. We ended up at the banks of the Ten Mile River at Hunts Mills for the party, and caught up with old friends, and made some new friends as well.

It was great to get the other authors of the book all in one place for a picture of us together.

The authors, all in one place. Bill, Marjorie, and Ernie

We were only sad that our marvelous book designer and map designer Suzanne (aka Auntie Beak) was ill and not able to join us.

The more adventurous of us set out in the heat to walk the one-mile loop trail along the river, including my buddy Kelly.

And thanks to Suzanne Buchanan, Volunteer coordinator extraordinaire for the Blackstone Heritage Corridor, for sharing photos from the day, and for asking about my other books in the series–turned out folks wanted not only to know about the newest book, they wanted the complete set as well.
