The Lake's Opening Up!


That means the ducks are back...


Because there's no more wood burning in the fireplace, it also means Garagee's willing to let Buster (white cat) sleep with her. Generally she wouldn't be caught dead anywhere near him...

especially if he's been digging in rotten fish guts.


Open water also means the eagles are back. Yesterday I photographed six on the ice. The one on the left is a golden eagle.


There is something so majestic about eagles.


Aren't they magnificant?


I'm guessing these two are mates.



 


I love eagles, but I better get back to work. I'm very close to finishing the sequel to Broken But Not Dead. Have a great day everybody.

  3. You live in a beautiful part of the world, Joylene. Very envious. Great news about the sequel, living by that lake and it's magnificent wild life, and I don't mean the fishy cat, it must be an ideal place to write.

  4. I agree eagles are majestic. I've always loved watching them.
    Also, excited for you as you come down the wire to another novel. Yay! I passed the 25,000 word mark on my newest yesterday. Yay!

  5. Nice to see the eagles. We certainly see them more often now that when I was young. Good to see them coming back!

    I can't believe you still have ice in the lake.

  9. Keith, that's great news. I'm a little over 125K, so I'll have to cut back when I'm finished. I hope to bring it to below 1K. Otherwise it feels too long. Hope you and Jack have an awesome weekend.

  10. Hi Laura. Yes, it was a particularly long and cold winter. Generally, the ice is gone by April 25th. Brr. Today the sun's shining, the birds are chirping. I love spring and the endless possibilities. Thanks for stopping by. Have a wonderful weekend.

  11. It's a lovely sight Joylene, even though it still looks freezing cold to me. It's nice to have a wide open space like that to yourself - so peaceful and quiet...with
    those wonderful eagles to keep you company.
    All the best with the sequel Joylene, and have a great weekend.

  12. Grandpa -- hi! Hope you're having a splendid weekend. I have my doors open today and I can hear birds chirping, and even the eagles. The ice is rotten fast. Bet we have open water in just a few days. I'll post more pics when we do. Thanks for stopping by. Take care.

  13. The Eagles are magnificent. My son's lake house is the place we see the Bald eagles. I have had them fly just over my head at the water's edge and land in a tree a few feet away from the porch. Unfortunately, I never have a camera at the time. My best

  16. Hi Count Sneaky. I never seem to have a camera handy when I'm that close. I did capture a pic once of an eagle on my railing, but I can't find it. Too sad. They fly by continually all day long. It's magical. Thanks for stopping by, Sneaky.
