We had the old two-bedroom tent for about ten years and finally wore it out. Joan got a new one for this trip.

I found a French watercolor journal I’ve had for 16+ years and never used. Great paper. I tried to get the dapple-light filtered through the trees, with only moderate success.

The kids were constantly rafting down the river just behind the tent. Their swimming clothes were likewise constantly drying on a clotheline alongside the tent.
