Philippines: Crossing the River

The current was strong. The water was clear. Rushing over the rocks. The only way across was through. Cool water felt good on my feet. Flowing through my shoes. One woman. Lost a flip flop. Swept into the current and carried downstream. The rest of her afternoon. Was walking on the rocks. With one flip flop. And one bare foot. For me. The best thing about traveling. Is doing things. I don’t do. Every other day.

There was a place called Split Rock we'd go to as kids. it was in the mountains and a fast moving but fairly shallow river. We'd walk in it and sit in it, and sometimes it felt like you might lose your bathing suit. The water was very strong, and that spot was lovely.
