If I’m going to oogle at the wildlife, on our way to church, I need to start out earlier.
It’s not MY fault a bald eagle landed across the river from our house! It IS, however, Don’s fault for telling me about it.
He’s feeling under the weather so he wasn’t going with me. But that didn’t mean he was going to take the photos. hahaha
snap, snap, snap, snap, gotta go – I’ll look at them later!
The eagle looked up and down that clear Alsea River.
I have gotten into a pretty good habit to pack my camera with me everywhere.
However, I specifically do NOT take my camera with us to church, for this very reason: I’d be late everytime.
Life is full of hard choices. We have to strike a balance. 🙂
I was pleasantly surprised, though, when the herd was still there when I came home today. (By the way, I was on time.)
It’s not often that they are within walking distance from our house so I was anxious to walk back with my camera. I really didn’t want to take time to eat lunch but I asked Don if he felt like eating anything. He first said, “No”, but then changed his mind. So I fixed myself a sandwich and he looked at me like I’d deserted him. Then I remembered he’d wanted soup. 🙂 As I said, I was a little distracted by those elk. So we finished lunch and I ran off to see if I could sneak up on the elk. They startled as soon as they saw me. I don’t know if it was me or the sound of the boat in the river or both that made them get up and move. Next time I’ll wear my camo, instead of chartreuse, coat.
The Alsea has been at a nice level and color for fishing for about a week now.
It’s nice to see the ripples back. They disappear, of course, when the water is high.
I’m enjoying it for now because I know the other rainboot will eventually drop.
