All Things Pleasant on the Lake

To describe a rainy, dreary day as a beautiful day does not seem quite right, but actually, the lake and hills in shades of gray can be absolutely stunning!

The loon’s cradle rocks contentedly in the cove, singing a lullaby to the two little chicks growing inside the smooth speckled shells. Sometimes the loons find themselves lulled to sleep. Precious moments...too precious to miss, and never the same ever again...
