Here in Ontario, the Board of Education occasionally has professional development (PD) days for teachers. This also means that students do not attend school on these days. So this Grampa and Gramma took the two grandsons to the Safari Game Park about 1 hour west of Toronto. As luck would have it I could get up close to a couple of Rhinos to research finishing touches for the Rhinoceros Racing automata. These girls are little more than 15 feet from my seat on the Safari Park Bus! Lots of fun and very interesting.
Automata is a creative blend of my life interests , engineering, art and woodworking.
