I woke up this morning to rain hitting the windows and thought it is going to be a wet walk today. It really wasn't that bad though. I brought my umbrella with me and had to use it for the first half of my walk. It rained pretty hard at first and then it eased off to a nice steady light rain. I walked around the lake and it was actually nice walking in the rain listening to the rain on the umbrella and dripping off the trees. I didn't see anyone for the longest time so I had the lake paths to myself. It was great. The rain let up and finally stopped altogether. I spotted the deer and her 2 babies and took this picture.
I also saw the white egret again, bunnies, and the ducks seemed to be enjoying the rain. I watched a Cardinal snatch a cicada out of a tree. The cicada fell to the ground making a funny noise and the Cardinal quickly got it again, happy to have a good breakfast.
About three quarters of the way around the lake I started seeing people again.
I was about a mile from home when my phone rang. It was my son David. :-) He was out walking too (on a break from work) so we got to talk and walk together! Nice!
It started raining again by the time I made it home.
Now it is time for breakfast and to start the rest of my day.
Have a good one.
I'll probably be back again later tonight.
