Saturday build and farewell to Ed!

Our October Saturdays are pretty busy with lofting and building the station molds for the Providence River Boat.  Last Saturday we also sat around after, ordered pizza, learned knot tying (thanks to Georgina for supplying the wonderful handmade kits) and heard stories from Ed about his next adventure.  Here are a few photos…..
