Our lake is too small to allow any motorized vehicles, so it is always quiet enough for catching wildlife unawares. We saw turtles,
and water birds, including this great blue heron. We are able to get pretty close in our quiet kayaks. We paddled and drifted for less than an hour, but it was such a relaxing escape from our normally busy world.
After we climbed back up the hill and cleaned up, I opened this lovely package of goodies that arrived in the mail today from artbeads.com. I can't wait to dive into them and start crafting some more charms and bracelets!
