Let me tell you the story of summer —
Of long, hot evenings and herons skimming the sky.
It’s a story of dogs and a lake
And the sighting of beavers swimming in the pink-tinged water.
It’s the story of sharing a beautiful sunset
With a stranger, who had driven all the way to my small part of the world,
From Russia with his family.
And now it’s a story I share with you.
For more shareable moments, please go to: Our World.
It was a cold and windy day in late April
And the beavers were busy down by the lake.
The chill in the air did nothing
To dampen the enthusiasm of Ruby and Simmie —
Look at those ears fly!
Being down at the lake
Means only one thing: swimming fun!
(That’s Ruby jumping in so elegantly.)
Later on, Simmie showed me the true meaning
Of prancing as I enjoyed the view across the water
And dreamed of warmer days.
