You know how wonderful it is to pull a car over to the side of a road and look at beautiful vistas?
Admittedly, I do it all the time.
There are many picturesque lakes in western Massachusetts.
No matter how many times I've seen them, they always draw me back to look at them.
One late summer's day, mine were not the only eyes surveying the beauty of the surroundings.
These birds were having the time of their lives.
They seemed to be playing, flying off the rail near the lake and then flying back.
One stood proudly on the post and took on a statuesque stance.
He seemed to be thoroughly enjoying the afternoon and the lushness of the surroundings.
Maybe he was looking at me, the human, thinking, "What are you looking at?"
For a few brief moments, I was blessed to join him and his feathered friends.
Then, each one, right down to the last, flew away and I took off in my car and drove back into reality.
DO YOU EVER STOP IN A PARTICULAR PLACE TO ENJOY THE BEAUTY OF THE SURROUNDINGS? WHERE?
