Middle America

California, Nevada, Utah, Wyoming, South Dakota are all in the rear view mirror as we settle into our lake home in Minnesota. Our road trip from the west coast took 6 days and we admired the beautifully changing countryside as we headed east.  The moving truck arrived and all has been set into the house – but the house is not ready for us to unpack due to renovations.  So I escape to the beauty of this place and find serenity in nature.

The mornings are spectacular as viewed through our kitchen window.  The large winged pelicans gracefully glide into the water ready to snatch a fish or two as they jump out of the water for bugs.   The great heron stands patiently and turns it’s long elegant neck from side to side like a periscope looking out to the horizon.  The mother duck and her nine ducklings pass under the dock and begin bobbing their heads into the muddy shoreline searching for breakfast.  The day is new and full of promise.  I love the early mornings on the lake!
