I'm so intrigued by your sinking tree! I guess that could happen if there was a significant change in the riverbank. Sometimes in areas affected by earthquakes there are a bunch of petrified trees that somehow remain standing despite drastic changes in the surface they're growing on (on the order of meters).

Maybe it was once perched on a big rock that somehow got dislodged? Ice is a pretty powerful force when it comes to changes in the ground.

In any case, yay for the first swim of summer!! Everything's so green and bright now, I can't wait for my local water bodies to be warm enough for that first swim!
