Wednesday morning I woke up early and decided I would venture out. Bernie was available to join me, one of the perks of being now officially unemployed.
Once we turned the corner on our street, a deer walked across the road in front of us. I was dismayed as my camera was still tucked away in my pocket and I couldn't get it up and on fast enough before the deer disappeared into the forest on the edge of the road.
Bernie told me to get my camera out anyway and get ready, noting that deer rarely travel alone.
As we walked around the corner, I wondered that I couldn't see them in the forest.
Turns out, they were right there waiting to get another peek at us as well!
I still think they are gorgeous, and was glad to get a close up shot of them this time.
The lake was especially still and beautiful.
We created quite a domestic storyline about how spider couples spend their mornings, chatting over the plans for the day, hopes for dinner....
cicada sounds that whirled about us. It was a soft high pitched rattle that went from rapid to quite slow.
It is a nice place to enjoy a break in the walk.
whirl bugs rippled the surface of the water beneath us.
Just lifting a camera and snapping a picture is about all the exercise I am up to beyond simply walking.
Love the clouds reflected in the water.
The water looked especially beautiful this walk. I must have taken a dozen pictures of various views across the lake.
A walk and good news: what a great way to start the day.
