It was a peaceful and quiet afternoon at Carpenter Lake. I didn't do very much except walk around looking at a few random things. There were a few birds around, but none that I could see. I could only hear them in the trees.
I went to the back of the nature preserve to check on the nesting goose. She's still there sitting on her nest. There aren't any new baby geese yet, but they should be there any time now. I want to be able to see them, so I've been checking every day now. Still quiet though.
The whole place was quiet, so I decided to just relax and enjoy nature. Since the last time I showed you the lake it has changed quite a bit. Go on and take a look.
See! It's a lot greener than it was before, isn't it? I love watching the clouds go by on a day like this. The wind was blowing, but it wasn't very strong. Just a nice spring breeze. You can see it in the ripples on the water.
For an afternoon there weren't very many people here today. That's a sharp contrast to the way it was yesterday, when the place was crowded. I like walking around here when I can just stop and take a deep breath, and feel like the whole world belongs to me.
Did you notice the rambling way of writing today? That's how my thoughts have been on this quiet peaceful day. I stood there on the fishing platform thinking about nothing and everything. I was able to let my thoughts drift without being interrupted by anyone.
What a nice relaxing day! I almost didn't go out here, because the day seemed so quiet and slow. I'm glad I went. I haven't had such a relaxing time in quite awhile. Ahhh!
