Tubing the Delaware

We were at the campground to tube

but decided to check out the arcade

 

Inside, you could play the skill crane for a dollar a try

and win a Kennedy fifty cent piece—

still in circulation

 

A purple mini Moleskin notebook floated me

wherever the water could not

while the landscape progressed

like a slow changing Inness oil painting
