… on the water at Watson lake in the granite boulder section of the lake, life goes on oblivious to what is above. I got this shot of a great blue heron in one of the little coves tucked back on the lower right portion in the photo last night. This heron was a little annoyed with us for interrupting his hunt so he climbed this rock and headed for a patch of water that was inaccessible to us. While the aerials are nice, there is something special about being down in and amongst the other creatures of nature.
A very nice flight this morning, and enjoyed the fast ride back from Prescott at higher altitudes as the winds aloft were blowing. Indicated 65 kts airspeed, but had a ground speed of 115 kts. That was sweet! A little more tweaking of the settings on the ADS-B device tomorrow and then the project is done. Just sticking around here for the holiday weekend, but down to a lake next week … being on the water is a joy … but so is being in the air … breathing works for me too!
Have a beautiful day and share a smile with those you see … especially the person who looks back at you in the mirror in the morning.
The green of all the fields is mine, the stars, the night, the wind at play,
A peaceful heart, while quietly
I go my way
