He says "Nope! Not gonna get it"
and leaving it.
and giving me a dirty look for loosing his stick.
But then he did something that surprised me.
He got out of the river and watched the stick.
He noticed that it was blowing back toward shore.
So he ran up the side of the river to the next open area.
To see if it was going to be close enough.
He quickly calculated currents, wind speeds, and angles...
and choose the opening two places down.
and he waited there.
