Within 10 minutes of arriving at the cottage yesterday, sitting alone on the deck, I watched a blue heron come in for a landing, then stroll half our lake front before walking out to the end of the dock, where it stayed for about an hour.
Then, moments ago, I watched seven swans swim by. Swans are not common on this lake. We saw a pair of them a few years ago, but seven is quite the sight.
It is so easy to decompress here. God I love it
