A new boat

leaf boat on pond

You know how you see pictures of leaf boats in children’s books? Kind of unrealistic—even apart from the animals or humans setting sail in them—because leaves don’t conveniently turn themselves into seaworthy vessels.

Except that yesterday we found one that had. It reminded us of a viking ship. So we launched it. It sailed just fine, albeit a little too responsively with respect to the breeze.
