Boone’s in the midst of near-Fayetteville-like temperatures. Gotta find some time to get the mermaid back to the New River. That photo is from a few weeks ago from Valle Crucis Park. She saw some kids frolicking in the New River and … and … I. Could. Not. Keep. Her. From. The. Water.
She dove right in. Shirt. Shorts. Pullup. Everything. I finally had to pull her out when her jaw wouldn’t stop chattering. And no, she didn’t like it one bit. Who needs warmth when you have water.
Gotta get back there soon. It ain’t gonna last. Our trees are beginning to strip.
