Afternoon at the River

One hot sticky Sunday we packed a picnic and went to spend the afternoon on the banks of a river.  It was the perfect slow afternoon savoring the hot sunshine and the cool water.

Because he can’t resist fishing when he’s near water, Ryan used a plastic bottle to catch minnows in the stream. Catch and release. I hunted for periwinkles and cheered on his fishing.
