It's not really a river for swimming, but doesn't this make you want to? What could be more beautiful than those small repeated shapes of blue in the green? And the golden color in the autumn hush and watersound? Not to mention the sunlight falling all around. Reports from our daughter in Michigan tell of snow on the ground all this week. Sparkling. Indoors is comfortable--and the wind doesn't stir the pages of your book--but nothing beats beautiful outdoor weather!
