What I did on my Summer Vacation

Look for Ashley's new book during the holidays, "Who Built the Stable".

Every year, toward the end of August when the wild blueberries are EVERYWHERE, we visit our friend Ashley Bryan who lives on Little Cranberry Island off the coast of Maine. You probably remember seeing Ashley in the pictures from my trip to East Africa.

This year was a very special one for Ashley because the one-room schoolhouse on the island has been renamed The Ashley Bryon School!

Here is Ashley sitting on the steps of his very own school!

Group on the river jpg We have made lots of friends on the island. But you might be interested to know that Albert has cousins that live on Little Cranberry Island. His cousins are called Sebastopol Geese and their names are: Shrek and Fiona. They follow each other everywhere.

They like to have their pictures taken; that's Shrek on the right and Fiona on the left:

That silly Shrek has some feathers stuck in his mouth; Spit, Shrek, Spit!

Well! We bring a big box home with us and turn them
into delicious BLUEBERRY JAM of course!
