Creek Exploration

With a pair of new to us boots, my son set out to see what they could take.

They pass the test.

It was interesting the comments we encountered on the trail as we returned. Some people expressed shock verging on horror, others laughed and one mom with a kid about the age of my boot-wearing son smiled and spoke directly to him, "That looks like fun."

I suspect creek exploration is in the future for her kid. I recommend it to all.

  1. I am so glad I subscribed to your rss feed - I get at least one genuine smile per post...Thanks for this!

  2. It does indeed look fun...I got my daughter some waders as we do river cleanups here in London, very dirty and very enjoyable!
    I like reading your blog - it's a ray of sunshine to read about grapefruit and bees when it's cold and damp here.

  3. Erik and Jane,

    Thank you for your kind words. Jane, I love the pictures of lanterns floating on your river. Your work is inspiring.
