One of the funniest memories I have of the James River happened many years ago. My husband and some friends were walking across the river using rocks and logs. I have NO balance and my knees do not bend when I am nervous. I fell off the log crossing the river and held on for dear life, legs under the log and INCHES deep water flowing through. I could not find any footing and my husband was laughing too hard to help me climb out of the water. Fortunately, I had friends who helped me climb out.

It has been at least 40 years since that incident and it still makes us laugh!
