This morning as I was out on my first walk of the day I saw large white wings disappear into the leaves of the upper branches of a tree. Knowing it was most likely a Great Egret I continued on the path slowly and quietly, stopping every few steps. It didn’t take long to see the majestic white bird in the tree. I stopped and admired for awhile then continued carefully, trying to see if I could get closer. I did not have my camera. If I’d had the camera I would have a photo or two, but because I didn’t I had an experience that will become part of who I am.
Before I left I thanked the bird for the gift of it’s presence as I always do with wildlife encounters and walked away, still slowly and quietly. Thank you God!
We are blessed to live in a beautiful place. When we decided to leave the big, bad, violent city behind and go elsewhere for our retirement we never imagined we could find such a wonderful, peaceful, natural and affordable setting. Thank you God!
Let me take you on a tour. As you drive into the community you will notice a beautiful assortment of spring/summer flowers.
This is our home. We enjoy lunch on our deck weather permitting. Our neighbors drive by on golf carts and wave when they go by. You can see the cow pasture behind us. No cows were out when this was taken but they do come down to the fence to say “hello.”
The humming-bird feeder in front of my studio window. Bob and I both enjoy watching birds at this feeder.
I like to go down to the lake for my morning meditation weather permitting.
Enjoy the wonderful view of the lake as you leave the property. Be careful and drive slowly, we don’t want to have to pull you out of the water. 🙂
