Yesterday I was on my way to an appointment in San Rafael when I came upon this area. The air was perfectly still and the waters were reflecting the blue sky like a mirror. I was so taken with the sight that I decided to stop on my way back later in the day.
I came back through a couple of hours later and it was windy and the waters were muddied up. It was so different then what I had viewed earlier, so I decided to return today with the hope that I could catch the same stillness in the air.
The wind was ever so slight this morning, but it doesn’t take much to stir the water. The view was nothing like the day before.
I was a little disappointed but then I saw a single crane and it was gracious enough to fly across the water for me. What a lovely sight.
It made me stop to reminisce about how I felt as a child when I would see something amazing for the very first time. Our lives are filled with wonderment every day. We just need to stop to take it all in. We all live in places that have beautiful surroundings. I hope you see something truly amazing this weekend.
