I was on Cape Cod at the end of last week and had quite a few smiles. I’m going to talk about two of them.
I took a walk in the woods by a saltwater marsh on Thursday afternoon. The alewife (a type of herring) were beginning to run, and the osprey were well aware of it. I counted over a dozen up in the air at once! There were times I could hear an osprey hitting the water every couple of seconds – Splash! Splash! Splash! I had my camera and took hundreds of photos. Unfortunately, their big feeding area was around a bend in the river, so I couldn’t see very well.
I haven’t had time to go through the photos, but here is one:
The second smile is going out on my kayak. I did a paddle on both Friday and Saturday. I saw a lot of wildlife, including, of course, more osprey. Both days were very good paddles, and I went a little farther a field than I typically do my first day or two out. It was just so nice to be out on the water again, even if the water was cold!
So that is my smile for the week, watching the osprey fish and kayaking.
What made you smile?
Come on, I’m sure you smiled at least once last week. Why don’t you share it? I hope you can join in!
Here is list of “rules” and guiding ideas. If you don’t have time to read it right now, just remember that this is an exercise to spread positivity. Don’t smile about the misfortune of others. Don’t smile in a way to excludes others. Make sure a 12 year old can read it.
To join in, write a post to share your smile and then leave a comment on this post with a link to your smile. Or, if you prefer, do a pingback to this post (pingback = have a link from your post to this one) (Note – pingbacks have been very inconsistent – please leave a comment :) ). You can post any time until next Sunday evening (to be simple, I will say midnight GMT, which is 7 PM Sunday for me). Next week I will compile all of the Smiles and do a separate post of them on Monday morning just before the smile. (I will shoot for around 7 AM EST).
