Anyone want to go bobbing for apples in the cool, crisp waters of the stream? As most of you know, I take my camera everywhere I go and this morning on my walk I happened to notice bright red apples floating in the stream that runs beside our property. There’s no apple tree nearby so someone had to have placed them there.
As I struggled to make my way down the steep embankment to capture a photo I noticed several apples on the ground too. You all know what a klutz I am, and yep you guessed it, I stepped on a grouping of apples and down I went sliding down the hill quickly approaching the water. All I could think of was hold the camera high so It doesn’t get wet. Luckily I was able to put one hand down into the very moist, leaf rotted soil and stop myself. Whew, now how I was I going to get back up the hill without loosing my footing again? Those apples were like walking on marbles and I now see how they got into the water, all someone did was dump a batch at the top of the hill and they rolled into the stream. I decided to carefully choose a walking path without apples scattered about and placed each foot gingerly to make my way back to solid ground.
I’m not sure why I always get these hair brained ideas, but I do. I can’t imagine how cold that water is and wasn’t about to find out, I was about to bob for apples the hard way.
