This morning Molly and I headed out for a walk.
Our destination was my neighbour’s duck blind.
We followed the path down to our waterfront
Notice those red dogwood branches poking out of the water. It’s a beaver dam just built this fall.
We work our way around the frozen outlet
Back along the shore line on the other side. Its quiet this morning. No chickadees, no ducks or swans. No wind.
At this point we step down for the grass and follow the thin path through the tall grasses
We are almost there
Out we go into the frozen lake
Duck hunters have brought in these boards and built themselves a bench. It’s kind of like a fort out here. Quite a discovery.
I sit and appreciate the quiet. I’m hidden and protected from any cold winds. A secret fort.
This is the view from behind. Acres of tall grasses
West Lake. The water level is very low after a summer of drought
All is quiet this morning. No ducks, or geese, or chickadees can be heard
We head back
Back on solid land.
Back to high land and my beautiful old trees
