Sepia Saturday 341

Sepia Saturday 341


This week’s Sepia Saturday prompt featured a group of people touring a cavern in England.  Well, here I have my grandpa, Leon Kitko, grandson of immigrants from England, who, having made his own canoe out of salvaged parts, is taking a tour of a reservoir somewhere in Central-Western Pennsylvania.  I’m told he was rather pleased with himself for having made the canoe all on his own.


As you can see, he even figured out the rudder and motor all by himself too, and judging by the grin on his face, was having a great time puttering around with this canoe!  I think you can see better in this photo how the canoe wasn’t all one piece originally and that it’s a variety of different pieces of metal welded together to make the final form.  It wasn’t very pretty, but clearly, it worked!

    Pretty or not, it was a one-of-a-kind original. I had a teenage friend who made a simple motor boat (the boat, not the motor) on his own & he was very proud of it. He took me out in it once & when it began to shake a bit, I did hope it would hold together (and it did) 🙂
