We drove to Chapel Brook Falls in the afternoon and hiked down to the rockslides. It was cool and damp in the woods and the water was like drinking iced well water in a tin cup. Snapped in their swim vests, the boys looked like they were ready for the rapids. They didn’t seem to mind. We teetered over to a shallow pool and waded on the rocks while L built a dam and C and I watched the other kids sliding down the rock waterfalls.
