I had my usual bad night of sleep and was still tossing and turning just before daylight so I got up and made coffee. As soon as it was ready I fixed myself a cup, went out on the wooden walk way and sat down facing the cove behind the cabin. I thought I would share my morning with those of you who might be interested in such things. Before it was even light you could hear the birds welcoming a new morning and that was a beautiful sound. As it began to get a bit lighter you could barely see the wake of two ducks cutting across the cove even though you couldn't see them yet. Then comes the dark shadow of something flying into one of the docks there. As the sun continued to rise the colors of golds, pinks and lavenders show on the water and in the sky...and the birds continue to sing welcoming the morning sun once more. It's almost dawn and now you can make out what the dark shadow was earlier, it was a Blue Heron flying in. It stands very still or moves very slowly around keeping its eye on shad breaking the surface of the water in the cove. Finally the sun begins to barely rise above the tree covered hills that surround the lake and a new day begins. Time for another cup of coffee at the lake...thanks for sharing the first one with me....have a great day!
