Continuing on from the last post …..
After the extraordinary morning today (read that post here if you haven’t already), I ate lunch back at my trailer and then fell very soundly asleep for over an hour. While I was sleeping, I’m sure my subconscious was very busy dealing with both interactions from this morning. What a miracle they each were.
I awoke refreshed from the nap and was ready for another hike in the woods .. this time down to the river right near my campsite. I would be leaving tomorrow morning and wanted to enjoy every minute I had here.
As I neared the river, I could hear kids and adults .. lots of laughter and splashing. It was a hot day, the middle of July, school was out, and everyone was having a great time.
The level of the water was a great deal lower than it was when I was here a month ago. At that time, there wasn’t even a hint of these long, rock shelves. And there were no gravel bars extending out into the river either.
It was a hot day. The water was cold and very tempting! But stepping into the water on these slippery rocks didn’t seem like such a good idea. Still, how interesting these rock formations were. I wished for a geologist nearby to tell me about them.
When I got to this warm gravel beach, my shoes and socks flew off my feet, and into the water I went. That water was cold! When my feet got too numb, I got out of the water and lolly-gagged around on the shore for awhile enjoying everyone else having a great time in the river.
Eventually I headed back through the gorgeous green forest to my campsite and my trailer.
After dinner and some time curled up with a good book, I looked forward to another peaceful night of sleep. Tomorrow morning, I’ll hitch up the trailer and head home. Can’t hardly wait to figure out where I’ll be going next. I wonder where that will be … hmmm.
