Our Duck Pond

It’s not the greatest pond in the world.  It’s not even the greatest pond in town.  But it is our adopted pond; our “Duck Pond”.  It’s come to represent the special time Kali and I have, usually early in the morning, when the air is cool and the ducks are still sleeping in their nests (until Kali arrives and gives a woof or two).  It reminds me of how fortunate we are to live in an area that is safe, prosperous, and pretty.   But mostly it reminds of how often I didn’t stop to appreciate our neighborhood creek and ponds until Kali got here last year and we began our morning ritual of walking and “smelling the roses”.

So this morning I took this “pano” shot shot with my iPhone that  provides a 180 degree perspective (what did we do before our phones only made calls?!?) that captures the usual turn-around point of our early morning treks, our walks, and our bonding time; me and my Golden Kali.

And a lovely pond it is. It’s always better to realize how good you have it, even if it comes a bit late. Yet another reason to cherish that Kali girl-she brought you to this lovely place. Yup, all smartphones do some amazing things but rarely do they make an actual phone call. 🙂 BOL-go figure.

It is so true that a dog can show us aspects of life that we were constantly overlooking. It can point us to beauties of nature that we never noticed, and can demonstrate happiness in a very uncluttered and simple lifestyle. Those “guys” are smarter than we give them credit for! 🙂
