Along the River Bank

Hello!  Would you like to come with me along the river bank and see what we can see?

It was a beautiful Yukon day and I went up the river bank with a couple of my children.  

The water was clear and cold...but still inviting. 

I love these moments that the Lord Jesus causes me to pause and breathe.  To just be thankful for all that He has created!

The moss so lush and green and the horsetail was growing well.

The cool of the moss under bare toes is so incredible!

These lovely flowers from all of my best searches are pink wintergreen.  

There are little bunches of these Potentilla shrubs all along the river bank and they are just starting to flower. 

There are little tiny beaches along the river side that just beg to be walked on.  

The river was so peaceful and I sat down for a long time while the kids played in the water.  I did wade for a bit, but my legs still felt like they were in a refrigerator for a long time afterwards. 

I also did a lot of cloud watching...there were changing quickly as they skittered across the sky.

We had our trusty doggie with us and she even got tossed in for a swim against her will.  

There are a couple little rivers that come from a neighbouring pond and my son found a spot to sit at the end of one where it entered into the river.  The water was warmer there.  

My daughter found this piece of drift wood and we all agreed that it looks like a Canada Goose flying.  

We have a family of Geese that are raising their family along our river and they are wonderful to watch!

The goslings are getting so big, and it's nice to see them learning new things with their parents.

Thank you for coming along the river with me.  I hope you have a wonderful day!

How beautiful and peaceful it all looks!! Does the water ever really 'warm' up? I know my girls say it's still quite cold. I can't imagine how quiet and restful it must be to live in such a place. Thank you for sharing it with those of us unfortunate enough to live in a noisy city!
