Early Morning Walk

Early yesterday morning, as I lay in my cozy bed sleeping, my husband texted me. He said, "Come join me out by the lake. Dress warm."
I could think of a hundred reasons for not doing this. But the adventure beckoned me. So I dressed warmly, grabbed my camera, and walked out the door to this sight. 

Good morning, Mother Nature. This is our lovely forest. For a sense of scale, see the bench in the bottom left corner of the picture. 

Golden leaves everywhere. 

I walked across the golden grass back to the forest. 

On my right, the pond mirrored the trees.  

This is my husband's newest project. A boardwalk through the marsh to our lake.  

At the end of the boardwalk?  A man and his dog.

He said, "You have GOT to see this."

This is what I saw at 6 a.m. above my dog's ears. 

Sunrise on the lake. A sea of tranquility. We sat there for an hour in the cold, breathing all of it in. 

Then the day called, and we walked back through the forest to the house.
What a powerful way to start my day.
Thanks, husband of mine.
