This was an outstanding weekend. Met new friends and learned new things and practiced others. Astronomy evening at Cherry Springs State Park was awe inspiring!

There were 11 people on our boat ride plus 2 park attendants. The excursion started off on time. The food was amazing, but cold. We didn't get to see many species of birds but we did see 2 adult and 2 juvenile eagles soaring above the hilltop. The attendants were knowledgeable and kept us entertained looking for and identifying a grebe, a tundra swan, some ducks, and various other birds. I am impressed with the park since I left the area in 1992! My only negative was the porta-potty at the boat launch. It was full-to-the-rim and the hand sanitizer was not working because someone had disconnected it and thrown it onto the floor. It would be nice to have a real bathroom at that end of the park or you may want to reconsider your contract with that provider. I will definitely attend another pontoon ride in the future!
