On a recent drive to somewhere else I stopped to admire the scenery from the edge of Lake Crescent in the Olympic National Park.
I heard the sound of giant wings pushing against the air and then the hair stood up on the back of my neck. Looking up I saw a splendid Bald Eagle. He flew over the lake, presumably looking for lunch, and then he graciously returned for this cameo shot in the movie I call My Life.
It was awesome in the fullest sense of the word. Oola was struck speechless.
A little later she recovered and resumed her chin-wagging with other travelers she met on the road. One of them, Sparky, was warmly dressed for this cold morning. Oola politely agreed, Yes, it really was VERY COLD.
As my eyes wandered across the water I was reminded of all those student hours in the darkroom flipping negatives to make mirror images. And all the while, here it was. Who Knew?
It was a remarkable morning — one for the records.
