Whenever I step into a river two things happen:
1. Memories of my teenage years flood back to me. My family and my friends’ families used to meet every year for an annual float trip. Some of the best memories of my life are on the river.
2. The Pocahontas song Just Around the River Bend is in my head for the next week.
What I love most about rivers is you never step in the same river twice...
Whenever Ina steps in the river one thing happens - she keeps stepping until she is neck deep in water.
We had a wonderful weekend camping with Dan’s family who were absolutely wonderful hosts. We slept in a bed and ate like kings. We also rented a raft to go on a short float.
The “short” 3 hour float somehow morphed into a 9 hour float. I am very thankful for Ina’s ability to sleep on the floor of a raft.
A long day on the river left me so completely exhausted that apparently I flung Ina off the bed in the middle of the night, picked her up, put her back to sleep, and have absolutely no memory of it happening.
Despite the trauma, I am very well rested today.
I hope you had a fantastic weekend and have a blessed short week!
