We found an old boat, all overgrown, years’ worth of leaves strewn inside and trees growing out of it. And yet, so well preserved. The bottom was rotted away, of course, but the rest of it was pretty intact. It lies there in the middle of the forest, right by the stream where it used to plough through the surface as someone fished for perch and pike. So peaceful. It has done its duty, and now it enjoys countless years of well-earned rest.
