For over a decade I drove the same road to work. A road that winds along the river and has a mix of industrial and farmland. Not a bad commute, not a great commute when an accident would happen as you were stuck, no way to go around or take another road and you could be stuck for hours.
But the best part of that drive came back to me last week when I went out to my old job to have lunch with a friend.
Bald eagles everywhere…in the fields…in their nests high up in the trees…sitting on sign posts…flying overhead. Literally bald eagles wherever you looked for miles. I had forgotten just how much I enjoyed seeing them each and every day. How the drive to and from work was made better by seeing these magnificent birds of prey.
This is a good year for the Bald Eagles as we had the best salmon run in over 100 years.
Amazing gifts we have from nature…
