Family Fun SkyWatch

I noticed that many of these old steam engines seem to have the entire family enjoy them - working and playing together. Between chopping wood, feeding the fire, and filling the boiler with water - there is something for everybody to do. I enjoyed watching them hard at work; running the saw mill and thrashing wheat. And of course, they have to blow their whistle and see who is the loudest!

  9. That is a lovely shot but if we did that here we would be arrested for breaching health and safety regulations allowing children anywhere near machinery. Our grandchildren grew up helping in the shearing shed from when they could walk, thank goodness those silly laws did not exist then.

  10. I didn't know there were gatherings for steam engines, and I live in Michigan as well. I love your description of the whole family getting into the care & feeding of the monsters!

    Happy Skywatching!
