It's a long slow journey downriver from Ander Falls to Jespar and there are few safe harbors. Usually guard duty on a river boat is an uneventful occupation. The quiet drift of the barge and the rhythmic splash of the scull can lull a bored watcher into sleepiness. But vigilance is a necessity. Crocodiles haunt the shore, monster fish (hazardous even to crocodiles) inhabit the depths, pirates and goblins lurk in the shadows of the great forest ready to spring from some hidden cove.
Posing for me was a good way for her to remain watchful while passing the time.
