We took the river past the post office and the heating company

I had some time off work last weekend and it was rare. I usually have to work the weekends at the Rocklin, Ca HVAC repair and installation service center. The boss scheduled 2 HVAC installations and 2 AC repairs for Saturday. I expected to be on the schedule to service one of those Rocklin jobs, but I had the day off. My brother and I went down the river last weekend in our kayaks. The river can be quite an adventure, so it is important that we are safe. We always wear how much and life jackets. We carry a safety whistle and an inflatable safety vest as well as the life jacket. The rapids on the river can often be extreme, as specially when the river is at the highest point. Every day the river has a low and a high point, because of the dams. The high point of the river usually occurs in the afternoon. This is the best time for us to get on the river and go kayaking. We waited until the perfect time last weekend to go down the river. We took the 7 mile journey down the river past the post office and the old heating company. The heating company has been there since the 1890s. They used to use the large boilers to break down pieces of granite. The large boilers have not been in use since I was a kid. No one in Rocklin has purchased the piece of property so it remains untouched and right beside the river. It doesn’t add to the beauty of the river, but it’s a piece of our Rocklin history.
