Sunday Wonder - R

R is for River.

Around home, we mostly see creeks running through the forest on their way to the ocean below the mountains.  But we have a very big, hard-working river not very far away:  the Fraser.  It has many moods.


All day long there are tugs pulling log booms...


or barges filled with...what?


Along the river there are marinas where the playing boats wait for that day off work...

When the sun shines in the summer it's a place for kids to cool off...


And on a sunny day in winter, you can write your name on the sandy river beach - or your Grammy can do it for you.


And, any time, you can find a resident enjoying a quiet corner of this neighborhood.

Faser brings money and joy to you locals :)
...and soon will your grandchildren write your nickname in the sand with a big heart around :-D
Have a great week!

I've always loved the liveliness of life on a river. I miss that.

The creeks in the forest appeal most to me! I can see you're the "nice" grammy:)
