Swimming with Bears

Last week after a hot day of farm work we were swimming at our favorite spot in the river. <img class="alignright wp-image-526 size-medium" src="http://new.watermarkfarm.com/wp-content/uploads/sites/2/2014/06/island-230×300.jpg" alt="island" width="230" height="300" srcset="http://new.watermarkfarm.com/wp-content/uploads/sites/2/2014/06/island-230×300.jpg 230w, http://new.watermarkfarm.com/wp-content/uploads/sites/2/2014/06/island-787×1024.jpg 787w, http://new.watermarkfarm.com/wp-content/uploads/sites/2/2014/06/island-73×96.jpg 73w, http://new.watermarkfarm.com/wp-content/uploads/sites/2/2014/06/island-98×128.jpg 98w, http://new.watermarkfarm.com/wp-content/uploads/sites/2/2014/06/island cialis no prescription.jpg 797w” sizes=”(max-width: 230px) 100vw, 230px” />The picture shows our swimming hole with an island on the left. I was in the water at the middle of the island facing Dave downstream at the lower end of the island. All the sudden Dave says “Whoa, look at that!” He didn’t yell but I could tell by his tone of voice that there was something unusual behind me. I turn around quickly and see a black bear crossing the river at the top of the island!!! The bear goes to the other side of the river and sits and watches us for 15 minutes. His head was framed in green vegetation and he just sat and watched. Eventually he went on his way. We kept swimming but took turns keeping watch. West Virginia is definitely wild and wonderful! (Of course we didn’t have our camera with us but I have included a clip of a bear from a different part of the farm.) Black Bear Clip
