[Charles River, from Boston; 8/13/11]
Too unwell to travel, we take chairs down to the river, sit and count the geese.
- My contribution to "What we did on our summer vacation" at Via Negativa.What did you do?
We could have also counted sailboats.

How good to have interesting things to count, and how obliging of them to stay in fairly straight lines.
Get well soon, both of you.

Thanks, Sky. He's healing slowly, and I'm doing better. :-)
RR: Thanks, and yes, I loved how those geese lined up!

I live on a pond in Natick where we are visited by ducks, swans, and geese, as well as their offspring. My grandson Caleb loves them, and for quite some time now I've referred to the geese as "the kings of the pond" when I talk to him because they come screaming into the pond honking like mad. So I love the picture of the geese lined up in a row. Just like my home!

Hi Tim! I wondered where you guys were living now. Sounds like a perfect spot!
