Rollin' On the River

One of the activities we did with the Japanese Girl Scouts was to go camping and river rafting on the American River. This is a picture of my toes from in the river (disposable waterproof cameras are great!). The water was "brisk and refreshing"--okay, it was cold! The day was hot. Our guides told corny jokes. The American Girl Scouts groaned; the Japanese Girl Scouts laughed politely. The stars were brilliant. The campfire was warm. The s'mores were sweet. And Wintergreen Lifesavers still spark in your mouth if you crunch on them.
