This would be great for rafting tomorrow, as well as completing his set of mounts; head, neck, shoulder, chest, wrist, ****, thigh and ankles. Further exertion was minimal as we were all aware of the strain rafting would place on our bodies ...
... biggest flower in the world, and we got to see all three stages of the flower- bud, full bloom, dead black flower. It was truly spectacular to see.it was growing near a river, on a small farm.
