“If my ship sails from sight, it doesn’t mean my journey ends, it simply means the river bends.” ~ John Enoch Powell
Our family vacation has come to an end. We have arrived back home. It has been a great journey together as a family to spend time out amongst nature, and away from the worries of daily life. Being out on a river, in the middle of Idaho, really was being disconnected from the real world. No cell phones. No computers. No houses. No roads. Just the river. And our boat mates. And our river guides. And the occassional other boat. A few animals. Nothing else.
It’s amazing how bright the stars are in the absence of the normal lights we have everyday from the cities we live by. What an awesome view of the world to look into the night sky, surrounded by literally millions of stars, and really experience the vastness of this universe we are part of!
We have survived on the river! But this is just part of our journey that continues as we go through life. The river of life goes on, and we are thankful for the opportunity we’ve had as a family to spend this time together with each other. This has been an experience we’ll always remember, and a family memory we’ll always have!
