We sort of kid (no pun intended) that these past two weeks are Amma and Buppa's summer camp. We take them to swimming lessons in the morning and try to do something treatful with them afterward. On many days, this involves a swim the the neighbour's pool. However, on the last day of our camp before a little break, we finally had nice enough weather to plan a picnic to The Mill.
A picnic lunch was soon followed by playtime with another group of kids that Danica quickly befriended. However, these photos begin with time afterward in the river.
We took nets and pails so they could catch bugs and crayfish as they did last, but that didn't really happen this year. The water was higher, so the kids stayed close to shore. Even then, JJ managed to fall in and get himself quite wet.
Here are two photos of our surroundings as the kids explored. The first is the remnants of an old fence: the second a look down the Indian River.
A tree had fallen into the river, so we just had to get some pictures of that.
I did my usual thing, feeling somewhat sorry for myself that I can no longer cavort in the water with my bad foot. Sigh.
And while Amma also didn't get wet, she was very helpful to the kidlets.
