June morning

5 Jun

This is the little slice of heaven that Julie & I visit from time to time, her cottage out near Millerville.

Yesterday we saw the resident muskrat swimming about. On the water or near it are two pairs of resident Canada geese, Barrow’s Goldeneye, an itinerant common Merganser , numerous red-winged blackbirds, Tree swallows and barn swallows , and rarely a Rocky Mountain Bluebird. At the moment, on top of a nearby power pole a red tail hawk is keeping an eye on the situation. Far in the distance, snow-capped Moose Mountain is Lord of the entire terrain. For a change, the air is calm, the morning stillness as of yet unbroken by any breezes.

We sit on the deck and take in the view while sipping a cup of strong Oso Negro coffee. Ain’t life grand!?
