We never did get a new camera as we had planned. Principally because our current one we currently have has been (mostly) trouble free all summer. It’s still finicky and definitely needs replacement. But we haven’t had the sort of problems that would bring it to the top of the list of items to be replaced and retired. It would be nice to have one with a remote control. Then I wouldn’t have to jump up out of bed so abruptly after a photo session.
This week marks the sixth anniversary of then new oars, our first major rowing purchase. Even though we still sometimes think of ourselves as beginners, we’ve actually be rowing for seven years and are experienced. Now we have all our own gear including our own private boats.

We rowed earlier than usual on Wednesday which was a good thing since it rained at our regular time. The entire spring has basically been one rainy day after another after another. We sometimes have sunshine part of the day. But, never long enough to totally dry things out and for the river to recede to normal levels. We are still anticipating long, hot summer days. Hopefully our optimism will be rewarded.
