The family and I floated down the Bow River in an inflatable boat today for the first time. The weather cooperated and treated us with sunshine. We saw the undersides of all the bridges on the west side of town. There were more people than I expected along the river banks, enjoying the view and the water. The water was pleasantly cool on my sandalled feet as they hung over the bow. A family of ducks followed us while Banana and McMonk ate the cheese scones we brought with us, proving that ducks have an extremely good sense of smell.

McMonk was especially photogenic with her big grin and floppy, full-brimmed hat and there I was, cameraless.

Aw, nuts.
