Hot Time Summer By the River

It is funny, when you live close to something (especially for all of your life) you tend to take it for granted. So I decided to drive about five minutes from my house and take a stroll along the American River.

Down by the banks

I used to come out here a lot when I was a kid. It is clearly rafting season (and of course no one is wearing a life vest and everyone is drinking, that’s how it goes):

I had fun taking some photos (and crossing my fingers that these kids were good swimmers because the current was quite strong):

Jump, jump

It was a nice walk and I think I forget how nice the area that I grew up in really is.

Bridge over water

Now for the food update. All of the blackberries and peaches needed to be eaten so I used a recipe from Cooking Light Magazine (good magazine, bad name) and baked a galette using corn meal. It is already gone (must have done a decent job).

Dessert

Here’s to the upcoming weekend. I have about 600 prints from my trips to organize.
