The Art of Reclining In a Boat
Don’t be fooled. Weed spraying trips call for putting your raft in tight areas you wouldn’t normally aim for. Landings are quick, jumping out to stop the boat before it bounces off the bank and you have to find another spot downstream to try pulling over.
And then sometimes you wait there for awhile. And sip coffee. Read your book. Wait for the radio to speak, calling you to row around the corner and pick up your crew.
Here, then, are a few restful moments from last week. Morgan tied up in some willows and me guarding the collection of antler sheds the sprayers found while traipsing around the hillsides.
