Perched on the Surface (Sam’s First Swim)

More: Sam doesn’t love swimming (yet), but he couldn’t stand to be away from his mama while I was fishing for arctic grayling in Cantwell, Alaska! He swam out to me in the cold creek as best he could and scrambled onto this rock, exasperated, shivering, and relieved to be near me again! The best fishing buddy a girl could ask for! 🐾🎣
