Sebastian and I take another chance to go fishing. This time we go to Yellowwood. We're optimistic: we have beemoths this time! We hike up the dam and come up on a beautiful view--and a stiff chilly breeze blowing right in our faces.
That's disappointing. Every time I've been there this spring the wind was out of the south, but now it's out of the north. It keeps blowing the bobber back into the weeds. We stick with it for awhile then give up and head for the trail.
Sebastian is off like a shot.
I lag behind looking for wildflowers.
We hike back out and decide to go down to the spillway. It's one of his favorite places.
The sound of rushing water goes well with the early spring day.
Many rocks are thrown. Sebastian has recently learned about skipping rocks. I limber up and get a nice flat piece of shale to skip five times. I think he's impressed.
Many dandelion boats are launched, some for the pleasure of seeing them sail away and some to be used as targets.
Before we know it, it's way past time to go get some lunch.
After lunch we have one more thing on our agenda: hit the park.
He keeps me busy for awhile, then makes friends with another kid and runs around with him until it's time to go.
I'm trying to steer him to the truck when he looks over at a climbing tower and says "I want to try again to get to the top." He had tried earlier and given up. Too "slippery."
Now he grabs on and goes. No stopping and thinking about it too long this time. Before you know it he's way up there.
He's been having fun all along but this really makes his day.
Nice going, kid!
