On the last day of the family's trip, Daniel Tiger wakes up early to spend some special time with Grandpere. Boarding Grandpere's boat, they take a morning trip to a waterfall where they watch the sun rise over the water.

Daniel and Grandpere enjoy oatmeal and blueberries on the boat as Daniel make-believes that he is sliding down the waterfall.

Back at Grandpere's house, Margaret notices a paw print on the side of the boat. Dad Tiger explains that the pawprint is his from when he was a little tiger. Daniel and Margaret use paint to leave their own paw prints next to their dad's.

Daniel draws a picture of his morning adventure to give to Grandpere before the Tiger family returns home on the Trolley.
