An afternoon on the river

I spent the afternoon on the banks of the Connecticut today.

I stopped for tomatoes--tomorrow, I'll be making sauce to freeze.

I stopped for some beef and corn and put my money in an honesty can. Drove away.

I sat in my chair by the cattails and read my book...
Their Eyes Were Watching God

(my river spot so different from the southern swamps).

I was waiting for some adventurers. I heard them before I saw them.

Helen and her class arrived by canoe after two days on the river.
They were all so happy and had grown so much.

I, too, felt renewed by these waters.

Gorgeous day, what a great way for Hels' class to start the school year. I am sure they will be having many adventures together this year, do they have a big 8th grade trip planned for the end of the year?

I feel so relaxed after just reading your post! Such beauty in your photos! I love the 'honesty' cans around here too, most farms here seem to have them. Just beautiful.
