Here’s the usual view of the river.
Been here all these years, but finally got around to walking downriver in low tide last month, for a heron’s eye view. Took a bit of trickery; lots of slippery rocks. A small stool helped us get down there.
It’s a different point of view, for certain.
What I didn’t expect was that we had to look at every step of the way. Not just for slippery rocks, but shards of glass & ceramics…
We could have filled a basket/bucket had we brought one…click the photos in the gallery to see them larger. There’s scads more down there.
Today it was back to business as usual for the river –
Our gig today was much more straightforward. Apples. We have one of our remaining large apple trees that gave forth in abundance this season. But the tree is so overgrown that we borrowed an old apple-picker. The kids gave it a try, but hard to manage that VERY LENGTHY POLE.
They ended up helping a great deal; working the angles. fetching the apples out of the catcher…
I had to give it a try…I’d say the pole is about 12 feet long or so. Very light weight.
But still, you feel like you have to get up on tip-toes to reach the higher apples. And of course, those look to be the best ones.
We’ve been having apple pies, crisp, sauce and more. What could be more fun?
