August Serenity Blog Circle - Lakeside Morning In British Columbia

At the beginning of the month our daughter was playing in an adult soccer tournament in British Columbia, so we tagged along for the weekend to watch her play. On the way we spent a night at the small city of Salmon Arm, located on the beautiful Shuswap Lake. The hotel was located next to the lake and a bird sanctuary, so I decided to get up around sunrise to walk the area. As I have mentioned before, I’m not a morning person, but I will have to try harder, because the light in the early morning is so fresh and lovely, promising the start of a new day. A different feeling than the equally beautiful end of day light.

Enjoy the serenity of a sunrise walk along the lake!

Great Blue Heron, I believe. I love watching these birds hunt, patiently watching for a fish or frog, then grabbing them with their beak.

Anyone home?

It took awhile, but finally the sun broke over the surrounding mountains.
