Sunday afternoon at the creek

One of the joys of rural summers is a trip to the creek when the heat and humidity become appalling.  We pile towels, drinking water, inner tubes and the inflatable raft into the van (it seems a well-chilled watermelon is prerequisite, too), and drive about 15 minutes or less to our favorite creek.  There are other creeks around here, and a bit further off there is Barren River, but this one seems to have everything the kids could want.

We hope to come back a few more times this summer...
