Not a very buahcrafty post, but it was sunny so the boy and I decided to go on a little adventure up the creek. He knows the trail to get down to where the creek feeds in to the river well, so he led the way for a bit. Before long the decision was made to put dad to use and hitch a ride on the shoulders. All the better of a vantage point you know first stop was hunting crawdads, we caught and released about a dozen, he liked the little ones best and kept finding them under the rocks, and pointing them out to me. We are at the site where an old mill once stood with a water wheel. This foundation used to be part of the bridge, I can only assume the creek must have been bigger back then, in the winter time is the only season that it gets a heavy amount of water Thatcher noticed that someone had decided to come out here and do a little art instalment so it was time to take on this tiny gallery along the way this kid has a natural sense of adventure and wanted to lead the way most of the time, so we went his route even through the creek at times before it got too deep, at which point it was back to the shoulders. But he made sure I didn't wonder for a moment who was leading this expedition after about a mile and a half of trudging up the creek, admiring ducks, fish, crawdads, art, and all the beautiful scenery along the way our destination was finally in sight. With the stars and stripes as our guide we made the last climb up the bank to reap our hard earned reward the local ice cream joint! Thank you for joining us on this rambling adventure if you stuck through it all! We had a lot of fun, even though it wasn't very bushcrafty, so we decided to share!
