2003 Travels September 15


We were in no hurry to get up this morning, having slept soundly through a night free of noise from generators, other campers and civilization in general.

I’d been a bit silly and left my shoes outside the tent. This morning, one was inhabited by a little frog. I was fortunate that the inhabitant was something so innocuous. The frog was fortunate that I discovered it before putting the shoe on.

The bait net that John had put in the river yesterday afternoon now contained some small fish.

Getting bait

We lazed around the camp all day. It was very hot and we were not motivated to do much, except watch the river go by.

John tried some fishing, and actually caught dinner!

It was just great to laze about, knowing that our time was now our own.

We saw no one, heard no one. There was just peace.
