Nose to the sky, feet in the sand. I sink my toes into the silky, powder of the river banks. We sit beneath dancing leaves that cast a kaleidoscope of shadows and light across our cozy embankment. The air is heavenly. Not warm enough to invite a sweat, yet not cool enough to be bothered by the shade.
Big, billowing clouds tower high above the horizon and smooth ribbons of water ripple through the currents below. Icy blue streaks peak at the ridges of the soft, olive blankets; revealing the secret of the chilly, river waters. Two channels weave together, twisting and churning at the center, cutting beaches and cliffs at the edges before finally succumbing to their intended unity. As far as the eye can see, only greens and blues highlighted by the sands and clouds.
