After a brief overnight shower, the morning began with puffy whites and a light breeze.  A tree that has been for the past year a monument to the August 2, 2015 storm at Lake and Pearl, was history by mid morning.

The picture of the Blue Heron was actually taken yesterday after the Sheriff alerted me that it was across the river.  The crew of the Carol Dee pulled all the fishing rods in front of me so I could take a clear shot.  Great spirit of  cooperation here in Leland.

I have seen a blue heron 4 x this summer….twice flying over the narrows, I apparently startle it by walking on the bridge when it is still almost dark, once in the creek near our home and once flying over as I rode bike. It is a thrill every time……that is a beautiful picture. Thank you
