Camera Casualty

Well, yesterday's kayaking cruise down the Colorado River will
definitely go down as one of my favorite times ever.

And speaking of going down..

We were guided by our friends Miso and Lucy who are locals and know
the best beaches to picnic and swim. Yes! There are actual sand
beaches with Cottonwoods making shade for a nice
nap.

Miso lent us some waterproof video cameras so we could document our
day, and one went down in action, probably when Doug and Ben were
wrestling playing "king of the kayak!"

Miso's the best and was sadder for us to lose the footage than the
camera.

I am looking at it this way. It's sort of like a time capsule. It's
waterproof so it will probably get knocked along the bottom of the
river and surface at Lake Powell sometime around the turn of the next
century. Someone will fish it out and find some antique computer to
Download our home movies. They will be amazed to see how violent a
father and son could get, struggling to be the Alpha boatman, way back
when.

Could happen....

Hey you, I have to say we had a great time having you here in Charleston for the night. Thank you for being you. You made everyone feel so wonderful and at home and at ease. I talked to one of my friends after the show who had her daughter there with her and she told me that she had been ill for some time and that that was the first time in months that she had seen her daughter smile.....she says to tell you THANKS! I am honored to count you among my friends. Richard Lee Cody
