A Quiet Place
Hirschman's Pond is a short walk from our house. It's a great place to spend some quiet moments observing the life that has been enabled by this beautiful little body of water. Geese and ducks nest in the tule plants that surround the pond. During spring the pond is full of little goslings and ducklings tracking behind their mothers as they search for food. Turtles sun themselves on the fallen logs and exposed rocks, and if you're really lucky sometimes you will spy an otter darting through the water or lazily floating on its back soaking up the sunshine. And if nothing else, you can kick back and watch the dreamy reflections of the trees on the water.
