Fragrance Lake 2

For the Ragtag Daily Prompt: wanderlust.

“And how are you getting back?” I ask my daughter. “Are you going to edge backwards?”

She laughs.

Out on two limbs. Logs. Woman balanced on two logs sticking out into a lake.

Steady….
Ta-da! Woman turned around on logs, to return, arms out!

And she returns without falling in the lake.

Fragrance Lake

For the Ragtag Daily Prompt: balance.

My daughter and I hike in Larrabee State Park on Saturday. We went up to Fragrance Lake and around it. I wouldn’t go out these two logs, would you?

But she did!

The small lake was very still. I love the small ripples fanning out from the logs. And clearly the very end is floating. She leaves her cell phone and outer coat on land. How far will she go?

of note 2

For the Ragtag Daily Prompt: note.

And here is the zoom in to the silhouette in the tree: the third eagle. I said that we saw three at once and this is the third.

This is another juvenile.

Right now in the Pacific Northwest, it is a wonderful time to see eagles and hawks. I went to visit my daughter in Bellingham this weekend. With few leaves out, the hawks are very visible, perched high up, waiting for game.
