What would you do for a . . .date?
Okay, so I stole the jingle from Klondike. Shalene and I took off on the motorcycle Saturday for a date. We dropped off Abigail at a friend’s house and visited the hotel in town for a cold drink. As we left for the hotel I saw big dark clouds in the southern skies. Not a good sign, but not enough to deter us. We finished our cold drink and saw the sprinkles starting outside. A quick stop for Abigail and we started our dash back to camp…just a little too late. What was light rain as we left town turned into a deluge half way back. We rode the motorcycle through a small river that usually serves as the road in dry weather. When we got back, we were so soaked that we decided we needed to take these pictures. It was a good thing we left town promptly, as I discovered when I tried to return later in the day one of the small creeks we have to cross had swollen from a puddle you can step across to a waste high river in an hour’s time. And what of Abigail…I think she slept through it all!
