We had a good day today paddling. We saw no humans, no boats, several pelicans, a beaver, some swans, some geese, some ducks, a turtle, some fish. We are the queens of our own little empire, high above the water with a breeze, cotton, and mud. We had cherry cheesecake for supper. We washed all our clothes by swimming in them in the lovely silty Red River.
I guess you now know why
It is called the Red River. I wonder if the Big Muddy, the Missouri, is as muddy!
