There is nothing like a river in the morning

Adele Stewart | Columbia, South Carolina

In Columbia, SC, we are so lucky to have the Saluda river that flows through our downtown. When I lived there, I would sometimes wake up early before work and go paddle with friends for “Dawn Patrol.” There is nothing like the river in the morning when the mist is rising and the birds are just waking up, but the river is just as strong and playful as she always is. I love it and I am so thankful for those memories that are full of joy, peace, and anticipation, looking forward to what each day can bring.
