"Stuart rose from the ditch, climbed into his car, and started up the road that led toward the north…. As he peeked ahead into the great land that stretched before him, the way seemed long. But the sky was bright, and he somehow felt he was headed in the right direction." (from Stuart Little by E.B. White)

  1. We obviously didn’t get out enough during our brief time in Rochester. I wish I’d seen this! It’s very cool. The water tower series is a fun idea.
