While in Iowa with my family a couple weeks ago, I had the opportunity to go canoeing with my dad. What a treat! I haven't been out on the river for a few years and I had missed it so much.
And I wasn't disappointed. The water was as smooth as glass. There's just something about the sounds and the smells of being out on the river that makes me relax and try to savor every moment.
The evening weather was warm yet not hot. We saw birds - an eagle, herons, goldfinches, killdeer. It was just lovely.
