Down By The River

With our crazy, warm, spring-like weather we have been having, we really did go down by the river Sunday… and didn’t freeze.

The humans were running errands in Asheville and took us to Carrier Park for a Sunday afternoon stroll. We walk there a lot, but we spotted a path down to the river and had to go exploring.

Woo, Qannik, look what I found.

In the summer, we see kayakers and rafters on the French Broad River, but it may not have been quite warm enough for them. Still, it was fun just watching the river amble by.

Of all of us, only Cheoah is really interested in playing in rivers, though Natasha will sometimes wade knee deep. None of us ventured into the water yesterday.

Certainly not Mr. Picky.

    Nobody went into the river! Oh shock horror – but that’s the best bit of a river walk…

    Snow or no snow, they just love getting out for the ‘hunt,’ don’t they.
