Week 2, Day 1 - how can all this rain not keep this crew down!?!,....

What a day!
Straight into the water and raft building first thing this morning,... perhaps the theory was 'we can't get MORE wet' - great, great rafts.  Even one that made it all the way to the end of the waterway!

Then, it was on to knife making
and knife sharpening

so many uses for the knives today, to cut kindling for the fire, to carve wood and to chop veggies for the vegetable noodle soup we had before heading home.

so many nice photos to share, will put them on dropbox at the end of the week.  On to Day 2,..... should be warmer weather tomorrow and we will probably head to the lake for a swim.  So, swim gear, extra towels and dry clothes and see you tomorrow!
