Map reading is not my forte

This is a scenario inspired by David, one of the people on my bus trip.

As we gazed at the roaring waters of Niagara Falls we were trying to imagine what would possess someone to pack themselves into a barrel and attempt going over the edge.

I believe it's just bad map reading skills.  It made me recall the time I was navigating (something Left Brain never lets me do anymore) and when we were thoroughly lost he asked me to point out where on the map we were.

I indignantly handed over the map and showed him exactly where we were.  You can imagine my surprise when he gently informed me that the road I had been so diligently following and guiding him on was actually a river.   

Oooops.  Hey, it could happen to anyone!  Right?  Okay, maybe not.  I understand now why I have been replaced with a Magellan GPS System.

Long Live the Queen of Map Skills


  1. This is great! Thanks for sharing. Have you seen Katie's photos on Facebook? David and Pam

  2. Oh my, I just love your photo. Great artistry!! I'm not very good at reading maps either. I've always been a show and learn kid. Have a great day! Hugs, Edna B.
