we walk on two legs not on four. to walk on four legs breaks the law.

Today I went kayaking on Union Pond with The Jeff. We made it a bit of the way up the Hockanum River--the water was pretty high, so almost to the porn store. Well into the derelict mills, which we beached near and (gingerly) explored a bit.

If you can't make this out, it says: DRUMS. DRUMS IN THE DEEP.

It's okay, really: the kayaks draft deeper than the outflow.

The Jeff found two nonviable goose eggs on the island:

And I found a bird's nest:

And then we went home. No beavers this time, but The Jeff spotted a lodge:

The end.



This is where I live. Isn't it pretty?
