September '19 TI Life is Now Online

By: Susan W. Smith


September" is written with anticipation, sadness and joy! Anticipation for those heading to a new grade, college or university, sadness as we say goodbye to River friends and joy as we once again "own the River!"  The bays are quiet, marinas are starting to empty slips but most of all the River traffic subsides and the St. Lawrence River is once again, all mine.
