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.
