Our Morning Walk
Every morning I leash up Kenzie the pup and we take a walk along a trail that's just down the road. Along the way we pass Hirschman's Pond. There is very short path that leads down to the bank. Kenzie always stops at this junction and refuses to budge unless I take her down to the water. Once there she sits and stares at the view for several minutes, as do I. After several minutes of this, we return to the main trail and finish our walk. I truly believe she loves the beauty of this spot, but more likely she's looking for the geese, ducks, or the occasional otter that inhabit the pond. None were present on this morning--just the quiet lush reflections of the forest on the still water.
