Early Morning Paddle

This morning only a last trace of winter’s ice remained as the two paddlers slipped their kayaks into the lake. They worked almost as a team, working silently, so not to break the silence of the morning.

Once they were afloat the lead paddler quietly pointed right, the other nodded agreement and hardly making a sound they began a leisurely pace around the lake.

Visibility was hampered by the surface fog rising off the water, but that was right at the surface. Fifty feet from shore they watched a small group of deer grazing silently in a small grassy clearing.


This week’s Saturday Mix from Mindlovesmisery’s Menagerie can best be described by quoting from the website:

So, I would like you to use THIS photograph to write a brief story about spring in exactly one hundred words. It needn’t be gushy romantic or a lovely weather report, nor do you need to even mention spring .. but one should be able to tell that you’re actually talking about spring.

The photo is of Edgewood Garden, Washington State
