This past weekend, I drove to Greenwood, South Carolina to visit a dear friend of mine. Lyndi decided that it would be a fun adventure to camp beside the river and then float the river in a canoe the very next morning. Since Lyndi was bringing her dog Oliver along, I decided it would be fun to bring along my seven-month old puppy Ash as well. This was Ash’s first camping and canoeing experience. We had to shave him before we left because his coat was so thick, and I knew he’d be miserable out there on a canoe all day if we didn’t. Thankfully, Lyndi knew how to shave a dog. However, Ash didn’t fully cooperate with us so we decided to fix it later (there was too much hair!). Lol! He looked like he had lost ten pounds when Lyndi was finished with him.
Anyways, out on the river we stopped for lunch on a rocky bank. Ash was a little nervous about the water and the canoe, but he had fun exploring none the less. Oliver, on the other hand, was a pro at playing in the river. He never grew tired of fetching sticks and rocks out of the water. He is a fantastically strong swimmer! Each time Oliver would exit the water, he’d rub himself in the sand until his coat was fully dirtied. It was the cutest sight in the world to observe these two, free-spirited beings. Obviously, I had an absolute blast as well! The setting was incredibly green and peaceful. The river water reflected like glass as we floated with the current. I know I said I was going to begin posting one photograph per post, but I thought that this tale deserved multiple photos because it would have been hard to sum it all up in one image. I am also taking a short break from my The Children Must Grow Up Series. I need to take my time with those images. I didn’t want to feel rushed to the point where I wasn’t describing my thoughts in words alongside my images (which happened a couple of times). I hope you all had a great past weekend as well and please enjoy these photographs! Feel free to comment if you have something (anything!) to share 🙂
