There are still a lot of things I want and need to do before it's really done.
So, after I launched it and played with it a bit more, I accepted an invitation from my cousin Matthew to go to his little lake house which he refers to as a "wooden tent. " We would go for a canoe ride, do some sitting just looking across the lake at boats and waves and light, and enjoy his gourmet cooking! On our paddle we were very happy to come upon a large-ish bird standing on the shore in amongst the high bush blueberries growing out over the water. It was heron-like but too small to be a heron. I thought maybe a juvenile green heron. I looked it up later and it was an "American Bittern." How wonderful to see it! You can see it here and don't miss the "sound" link it makes an amazing sound!: http://www.allaboutbirds.org/guide/American_Bittern/id
