but on one beautiful, sunny, warm day, ander asked me to take him canoeing. he remembered canoeing in california at family camp and with gammy & papou in ohio.
when we arrived at lake fairfax, we learned that canoes were not available for rental, but paddleboats were. he agreed to this change of plans and i am so glad he did. such wonderful moments together.
|the water sparkled almost as much as our green conveyance. ander directed and powered us for much of the time. he's a strong and capable engine.|
|gazing at the pontoon boat and waiting to rock in the waves of its wake|
|graceful goose families and sunning turtles comprised most of our company on that quiet ride|
