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.
And because it’s what he does, he found a treasure in the ditch beside the road when we pulled over to check river access. A hardened steel 24inch ruler with all the tiny tiny increment measurements he wants.
