Sitting on a porch swing is good for the soul. Sitting on the swing and gazing across the water is doubly so.
Bald cypress, tupelo, lily pads, reeds....a flotilla of Canada geese were present at dawn, including one pair with seven goslings. Could this have been more perfect? Frankly, yes: the fish could have been biting!
It's a computer-free zone for me, though I do have puzzles and books along. Thanks to the poor fishing, there was plenty of time to sweep the porch, wash the windows (though only the ones with a view of the lake), and pick up limbs for the fire ring.
