Yesterday started out a bit different. I usually get up, make juice, make coffee, take my dear little puppy for his morning walk and then go on with my day. Yesterday was one of those days where your day starts immediately and then you fill in the blanks with the normal.
As I was about to grab my puppy for a quick outing (meaning heading out the back door and letting him find a bush to relieve himself) I glanced out my window on our landing of our steps. There was a beautiful heron. He visits often and I never tire of seeing him in our yard. Yesterday he seemed to be warbling. I had never seen this before. My dear hubby suggested he may be eating a fish. I had the weird thought that maybe he was alarming other creatures in the area of danger. I know, it’s the creative side of my brain.
As I was about to turn and continue up the steps something else caught my eye. At first, it looked like a stick floating in the pond, but on second glance, I knew it was not. It was a young relative of “Al” the gator who visited our backyard three summers ago. We tried to grab a picture of him yesterday, but he was too quick and clever. I watched him a couple of times yesterday, he seemed to be enjoying our little pond and it’s not so safe haven for crabs and turtles and fish.
Hope you are having a fun weekend, like I am. As always, DAF
