I try not to quilt in the evenings and weekends on the Spring/Summer months and spent that time enjoying the outdoors. But on Wednesday I played hooky and spent the day on the water. How could I not, look how calm the lake was! I love our rocky shores and watching the fish swimming under my kayak.
I noticed an otter swimming along the shoreline so got out my camera. He climbed up the rocks and started rolling around in the moss. My view of him was hidden by a tree so I quietly drifted up to where I could see him and got a picture. He quickly noticed me and didn’t want to stick around for more pictures.
I also saw eagles, pelicans, loons and a family of ducks. I counted 10 ducklings with this mama! Then last night we had our first bear visitor of the season in our yard. Just a young bear that was probably just kicked out by his mom.
