Memorial Day 2009. Met up at the Waterfront with $50 of food and wine from Trader Joe’s, crawled onto the boat and meandered along the Potomac all day.
I was the only one in the water, which probably means I’m the only one that will get some rare infection from swimming with the bodies that get dumped in the water. Oh well. It wasn’t too sunny, I got good pictures of everyone and everything (will post some later, I suppose), and I got my heron, though no photograph of him. I didn’t leap to my camera either. It seemed to be enough that he was there.
It occured to me that the lion would have enjoyed the afternoon. Under other circumstances, I would have enjoyed the lion’s company. So it goes. Up next? Perhaps a weekend of wandering the water. Maybe a whole week.
