By The River
I am not really sure what it is about water----well, beyond its usefulness in sustaining human life---but I am always happiest when I am near a body of water. Lake, river, the ocean it doesn't really matter to me. I have a healthy respect for water as I am not the best swimmer in the world...oh and you should see my diving abilities, legendary!
Anyway, around this time of year we often spend a lot of our evenings following along the river trail somewhere in our community. Last night we loaded our crew up and took a family walk down by the river. My walking is a bit slower and lacking in my normally abundant grace and dignity.
We sauntered along, answering a zillion questions for Cordelia, letting Bumblebee greet a corgi named Abraham Lincoln, and enjoying the view. We strolled until we were bombarded by a freak cloud of baby moths and had to hustle away from the trail. We decided to continue on to the park and let Cordelia enjoy a little more of the evening.
How did you spend your night?
