Northern Woods....Sunset

     hydsunset1.jpg


 


Every night between the hours of 5:00 p.m. and 9:00 p.m. I was perfectly content sitting in the front of a rented aluminum boat, snagging my lines and stabbing my fingers with all kinds of fishing hooks and lures, just to watch my Husband do something that makes him extremely happy......Fishing! lol


I was able to listen to the sound of Loons calling out to each other across the lake, I watched the sky as the eagles soared and the buzzards congregated.....I was able to watch deer play along the waters edge and occasionally I heard the drag of my fishing line as I caught a few Northern Pikes and Large Mouth Bass of my own.


The sunsets every night were just as spectacular as the sunrises of the mornings.......Even though I love the soft light of the morning sunrise, it's the gold shimmer that hits just as the sun sets behind the woods on the lake that always held be in complete awe. I would sit there and watch it with a grin on my face as if I was witnessing it for the very first time every night. Something about the water, the woods, the sun and the moon makes me at peace with myself....nothing else can penetrate my psyche during those moments.......I am as tranquil and as serene as my surroundings....it is at that moment, that I know......life just can't get any better than that.

Kim, you have a great journal - been reading it for a while, but never commented.  You are inspiring me to start my own.  As a newlywed (of 4 months),I certainly have alot to write about (some good - some not so good)LOL.  Love the pictures from the lake - reminds me of my favorite get away on Lake Lanier in North Georgia - my heaven on earth!

That is beautiful.  I can see how relaxing it would be. I remember our trips up to the lake in Wisconsin.  Sandi

Ashleekr,
Kim has a way of inspiring people.  She inspired me to start mine too.  Kim's probably sitting back thinking I am NUTZ....
