Crossing the River
July 29, 2018
Two weeks ago I made my way to the Vermilion River, something I do less often than I used to now that we are living back in town. The river still charms me, I’m happy to say, and I was in special good luck July 14 because the river’s water level was low and its banks embellished with iridescent patches of Leptothrix discophora. When the water is low, I get to wade across to the other side, where I usually can find more colonies of my favorite bacterium (photos to come). The wade itself is a treat, though, and I love seeing the ripples filled with sunshine at my feet.
There’s a wonderful feeling of good stuff to come in this post. 🙂

Well . . . you’ll see. Perhaps not what you expect.

It’s special when the water is clear and the sun is shining and you can look the ripples down to the river bed and see those streaks of gold created by the sun.

Ah, so you’ve had this experience, too, Andy. Lucky us.

Yes, quite recently, looking down into the sea. Might post something soon on that.

Oh, good! I look forward to seeing what you saw.
