The shots of the river walk are from last weekend. I took my entire family with me--this is unusual because my entire family includes a teenager--the river walk is about two miles long, it starts on the edge of one city and ends on the edge of another. We found dandelions as big as our fists, gigantic dandelions begging to be blown, a white heron, butterflies, a duck and her ducklings, abandoned buildings, graffiti, missing railway ties, folks fishing. At the end we decided to head on to Main Street and get refreshed. We stopped at a little cafe and listened to live music, "That's Alright, Mama." We tapped our feet and fingers, one of us danced and was invited to take the show on the road, and then we paraded back to the river walk. We walked and talked and talked all the way home.
