Living Land: We don’t have to put up with rough water – Burlington Hawk Eye | WHs Answers

Chris Lee

Twice this week I took the family to the river to splash around on a sandbar to escape the heat.

Considering the cost of fuel today, it would probably be cheaper to go to the water park.

But I’m a river rat at heart, so the muddy waters are calling me and I must go. Also, I didn’t just buy the boat to mow something else.

On more than one occasion, one or both of my children (ages 7 and 4) have planted their faces in the murky water and emerged spitting and stuttering. Because that’s what kids do.

Rough. Do you know what’s in this water? Neither do I. I’d rather not find out. But hey, at least there’s no chlorine burn.
