The path is pretty short but a little steep in places:
But check it out!
While we were dangling our feet in the river, an ebony jewelwing (damselfly) landed on my big toe! No pictures (especially these!) could do it justice - they have brilliant teal green bodies and black, iridescent wings. The sun spotlights every single facet of their make-up.

The adventurous little man *outwardly* enjoyed it seemingly more than his more tentative sister, but she had just as much fun! It looks like I've left him in a rather dangerous situation in the above left picture (!!), but he's sitting down in the water. Promise! 😊
After the morning's adventure and during a super quick stop at Mama & Papa Pea's (I didn't even let the kids out of the car), Papa Pea gifted little Twin Girl with a very freshly-laid goose egg. She didn't let go of it for the rest of the day! (Pardon the outfit - after swimming at the campground lake in the afternoon, she opted for the comfy look.) Here we are, getting gas before heading home.
There was much discussion and a bit of contention regarding the consumption of this egg, but I assured them that it was big enough that it could be shared three ways come Sunday morning breakfast! 💗
