Relaxing Along the Chattahoochee
I always seem to relax when I'm down by the river...or lake...or any body of water. I guess that most people would say water has a calming effect on them as well. The sound of the water rushing over the rocks, cold and clear. Many local people over the last couple of years have said that they would not eat the fish from or swim in this river, but I think they are referring to the river of old, when the run-off from the mills and the garbage from Atlanta polluted the river. Local groups have spent years cleaning up the garbage along the river bank and the Columbus water works tests the river three times a day: low flow, high flow, and low flow receding and they say the water is clean. As a non-expert, it looks clean to me and I would not be afraid if I happened to swallow a mouthful if I happen to fall out of a raft. Happy Tuesday. It's been a long day and I am heading to the rack.
