Sunday Morning on the lake

Pocahontas Park-1-3
I have this wonderful memory from about 14 years ago of going out on the neighbor's pond with my hubby one Sunday morning.  He fished while I took in all the sights and sounds of the early morning as we drank our coffee.  There's nothing I love more than the feeling of the cool damp morning air, and the sounds of croaking frogs and chirping birds waking up to a new sunrise.  One of the attractions of moving to Richmond is we live minutes from one of the most beautiful state parks in Virginia.  We decided it was high time, since we've lived here for over 5 years, to try out the lake that's essentially in our backyard.  Even though it's a different location, the experience was every bit as relaxing and peaceful as I remember.

  1. I agree with you. Here we know that our life might need new concept, new type. New stuff can provide new think and new encounter to us. Just like your weblog, it take me to a new state. It really is so great that I can not leave.
