The Milner cousins and I went kayaking down the Belly River again this weekend. The water has settled at a bearable temperature and the weather couldnâ€™t have cooperated with us better today.
As we were floating down the river we saw a gaggle of 5 teenage girls gathered around the river bank, but all looking at something and all of them oblivious to our presence. Corry said, â€œHi.â€ And they all jumped individually as they spun around and saw us drifting by. We chatted with them for a minute. The girls were visiting their grandparents for the holiday weekend. It turns out they were inspecting a cowâ€™s skull they had found in the mud.
When I got back to my jeep I discovered bird droppings inside my car. How improbable is that? Iâ€™m guessing that when I left the door open to get my gear together that a bird let one fall at such an angle to precisely miss my seat and hit the arm rest. If they could only bomb that accurately in Iraqâ€¦
The video Aaron took of me last time is online. The water was higher today, but the video gives you a pretty good idea of what it was like today.
