As we step into another new month, I look back at a day in the end of May, a day spent with a good friend, exploring an area around the north end of Lake Manitoba.
Come along with me and let's see what we can find.
One of the birds that always makes me smile, is the American White Pelican. These guys have a somewhat goofy look, but are majestic in flight.
As this threesome passed in front of the clouds, I thought it made a nice looking image.
More Pelicans and more clouds, but a totally different sort of scene.
I was about to get into the car to leave, when these guys flew by, so low, I could hear the sound of their wings, as they gave an occasional flap.
Flying away from me, in perfect formation and low above the water.
You can see by the blue sky and a few puffy clouds, that we picked a perfect day to go exploring.
Yes, it was a perfect day, yet because of the time of year, the beach was still mostly unoccupied .
Water and sky for as far as I could see.
Look at those beautiful clouds and enough sunshine to cause the water to sparkle.
Yes, I am still close to the lake, but by taking a slightly different angle, the whole scene changes.
This is the kind of sight I could never get tired of seeing.
It was time to head for home, about two hours away.
I think this quote is appropriate for the days we are in.
We live in a broken world where broken things happen.
