A hot July day with the sun set behind the rock hill behind us, yet in front the orange rays glisten through the dragon's breath.

The dark force, whirlpools of currents, form a beckoning smile into its abyss; an unhealthy place to play.

In the river running
beneath the surface swimming
are dragons forever living
see the tail snapping
leaving a whirlpool swirling?
The grandkids with grampa and gramma parked their lawn chairs above the river to point out the dragons as they passed by hidden below the surface; only the whirlpools indicated their presence as their tails navigated them through the current. Smaller dragons created smaller whirlpools. It was always fun to discover a mother/child side by side, or perhaps a father training a young one, their swirling creating several twirling pools in groups.
Can you see them?
I needed a quick fix to keep the string away from the lightbulb so the light could stay on for the grandkinds. We still laugh about this "make."
This was my "make" of a toy. I created a game by making a die from the back page of each book shown. Notice that one of the sides has a sliding paper of the seasons in order. I wrote about it here:
Our neighbor's nine-year-old daughter created this lovely ice bowl with the help of another neighbor who is teaching her how to cook with lessons each week. Fun, huh? We have a great neighborhood.
