I see a stream and stop to quantify it - good for kayaking? fly fishing? wading? filtering for a drink? Summers on Lake Michigan began a love of water and I've visited now many watery sites - from Rio Chavon to Idaho' Snake River, Nova Scotia's bays, London's Thames, Paris' Seine, Yellowstone's falls, Maine's coves, La Jolla's beach, and everyday I see Michigan's Huron River flowing outside my door.
