I looked at Henry in the creek, saw the water was running clear and cool, and decided, why not? So I helped Desert Boy strip off all his clothes.
Desert Boy even flinched a little at the temperature--a true rarity. But he didn't want to get out right away. He wanted to play.
Desert Boy thankfully realized that the deeper, swifter water really wasn't a good idea and stayed close to shore. I kept wondering if I was going to have to jump in and get my clothes wet.
