I wanted to hike today, and my son wanted to visit a playground. So we settled on the 22nd St. entrance to the James River Park, as there is a playground across the street from the park entrance. Perfect to hit the trail for a short hike, then spend some time on the jungle gym, right?
Not exactly. There were too many stairs and long stretches with nothing much to see. And today the river was the highest I have ever seen it on a clear, dry day. The combination of short legs, lack of interesting sights, rushing water and a solo parent hoping to photodocument the event led to a remarkably short hike.
At least these guys planned their afternoon well. They look so absolutely relaxed.

I don't know if anyone ever questions this, but there is blue in every single photo I post as part of this project. Can you find it?
