Over the River and Through the Woods, Day 3&4

Rain! Oh, Beautiful Rain! It had been a month since any significant downpour had visited the area. When we noticed it was coming down, all five of us ran outside to enjoy the smell and feel of it. Oh, what bliss!

On Sunday, we had intended to get up at 6:30 and head on out, but a calculation error on our alarm caused us to sleep until 8 and not leave until 10. All was well, even still.

Father in Law was feeling much better and the temptation was strong to take the boat out, but we felt it was still best to lay low.

It’s a good thing, too, because two days later, his angiogram showed 95% blockage. He’s going to speak to a surgeon later in August about getting the aneurism repaired and removing the blockage on a more permanent basis.

Here are some photos from our rain-day.
