a good day

To celebrate a beautiful fall day and honor our 20th anniversary my hubby and I kayaked on the Mississippi River around Goose Island.  A fitting tribute to our honeymoon in the Boundary Waters; although that trip involved getting snowed on, nearly capsizing in howling winds with frozen fingers.
Definitely memorable.
This day was perfectly filled with warm sunshine, a v of pelicans flying overhead, turtles sunning on logs and a rope swing hanging from a tree with echoes of children’s delighted screams lingering in the air. All in all a joyful day filled with the peace of a river and some slightly sore shoulders.  Here’s to another 20 years….

    that looks like a wonderful day. I have an anniversary weekend planned for tomorrow – probably no kayaking but definitely hiking.

    And how different the Mississippi looks up north – here in St. Louis it is wide, muddy (and dirty), and full of dangerous undercurrents.
