Last night, water came up to the edge of our driveway. The view looking out over the wetland took on a lake-front magical appearance.
The next morning, it was an enjoyable outing to explore places usually known only by the ducks, herons, kingfisher, egrets, geese, and beavers.
Heavy rains the night before were just enough to make a much-needed kayak paddle explore possible.
I felt refreshed as I returned home.
