“Fif-teen miles on the Er-ie can-al”

imageErie Canal Song, Low Bridge, Everybody Down, Written by Thomas Allen in 1905, Erie Canal Village, Rome, New York.


  1. We took a group of Scouts on a trip on the canal in DC - for the life of me I can't think of the name. Pulled by the mules. It was a great adventure and your picture brought back all those memories - except for the name of the canal, of course. What fun it was.

  2. I realize those are forsbobet doggies but I would be hard pressed not to eat one ;)

  3. John, your colors are so vivid and the lighting is perfect. It makes me think of a painting by Thomas Kincaid. It is a very peaceful scene, and I'd love to sit on the back of that canal.

    We remember the song -- I started signing it the moment I saw the post title.

    I wonder about the comment from "sbo." I recently got the identical comment on one of my posts.

  4. Whimsical! Makes me think of knights and fair maidens and castles and moats.
