The kindness of strangers always seems to jerk me out of the subtle daze of negativity and flicks a light switch behind my eyes. Right after this picture was taken, Daisy Diesel succumbed to some soft sand rolls next to the Clarence River. She got #bogged.
After a couple long minutes of reversing, struggling, and digging in the sand, two campers came to the rescue with some golden hope and strong hands. The first man didn't hesitate to fall to his knees and begin digging. Then, another camper came down with a rope, tied it to the bottom of the car, and we all worked together to dig and push Daisy out to the hard sand. After copious "thank yous", we received a couple "no worries" back like it was their duty as a human. Mornings like this one I feel more awake than ever. #vanlife #downbytheriver
