When I went to bed Friday evening I was excited to wake up Saturday morning for the sunrise. I woke up several times during the night because I was sleeping away from home from unusual sounds like a train whistle in the middle of the night and sirens.
I woke up well before sunrise. I got showered, dressed and camera in hand to sit by the lake waiting for the sunrise. I was excited because where I live I don’t see sunrises over the lake because of the terrain around the lake and our home.
While I was sitting on the shore I watched as the ducks on the lake were swimming past and diving below the surface to feed. They were busy for over half an hour in front of me. I loved watching them disappear below and trying to predict where they would surface. In the distance I could hear gun shots. The ducks by me seemed oblivious to the fact that there were duck hunters at the other end of the lake.
It was a beautiful unseasonably warm sunny weekend. Perfect for walking, sitting and just being outdoors. Hope your weekend was as delightful as mine.
