First Night Sleeping on the Moors with Bodhi - by Marcia

How Much Can You Cram into a Day?

The river water is clear, cold, and moving fast. The rocks slide by as my rubber kayak bounces off boulders and careens down the rapids. Ahead is a seven foot drop, which seems really big from where I’m sitting. 870 more words
