“Down at the River”


Description from Deco Chick Elaine: Grandma and Grandpa lived near a river, and we would go to play there when the water was low. All kinds of algae and mosses grew on the rocks in the sparkling waters, and we found small shells, snails, crayfish, and minnows there. It was fun to catch minnows for a fishing trip the next day... (to be continued...)

    Me, too, all 3 comments! My sibs and I used to spend tons of time exploring a very shallow part of a river near our house. I can soooo relate!!

    Beautiful colours for the sand, mud, mosses and algae. Love the driftwood. We find bits of old clay pipes, bricks, styrofoam and plastic bottles along the shores of the Thames at low tide. A sad commentary. But down along the Devon coast are wonderful tidal pools with the most glorious seaweed, mussels and limpet critters. No crawdads, tho.

    Our minnow catching was at the creek. No colder water anywhere. Sooo much fun. Love this pick, Elaine.

    What a great pick. I too remember playing in the stream just down the street as a kid. Great times!
