Oh, well, I feel better today, cough has calmed down. I decided to act 'as if' I was hunky dory. A.O.K.
So I met my daughter at the river, and we went kayaking.
It was a beautiful day, and the sun was healing.
Looking up river.
Looking down river.
These kayaks were purchased at Dick's Sports. They were not expensive, but they were worth every penny. We have gotten so much use out of them.
In the quiet, we noticed that we had company.
I think he was looking for LUNCH. It was about that time.
He circled, and swooped.
And got closer and closer to the water.
Somehow I managed to snap this photo at just the moment he scooped something up out of the water.
But no matter how long I stare at it, I can't quite make it out.
What's for lunch??? Can you tell??
Whatever it is, was whisked up to a large nest in the treetops.
I got sunburned, and I am tired. But it was so worth it.
We went about two miles down and two miles back.
When my mother heard that I had gone kayaking, she shrieked......."Oh, my God, is she crazy?? She's SICK."
No. No, mother, I am ALIVE.
