Enjoying the view...

I haven't told yawl that I have the grandest view out my living room window. You have to look beyond suburbia, but then it is straight Nebraska...and sky forever a Western view. I get the loveliest view out that window when I do my dishes in the evening. I get the coolest show in town. A Nebraska sunset....which is my favorite, although the sunset off of Oak Island is not bad in NC, especially if you happen to have a Pina Colada, and sand under your butt...

The other day when we drove PN to Daycare in the morning, we saw 1 1/2 miles of Canadian Geese in about 60-100 different V formations, one behind the other....we stood out in the cold for 10 minutes watching them, listening to them....

It was one of the coolest things I have ever seen....

When I moved to the Midwest, the Fall or Spring "flying of the geese" impressed me thoroughly. I will say that I prefer the Fall because I love viewing them through the Autumn leaves. We didn't get Autumn leaves or geese in Southern California. It almost makes up for the frigid winters here. Almost.

Lucky! My view is not that enthralling...in fact, sometimes when I am at my kitchen window doing dishes, I close my eyes and imagine the view from my childhood kitchen window...much more interestingly rural. :)

M2 and Hubs had a similar geese experience last month & it's all she talked about for days. :)

I loved watching the geese when I lived in the midwest. The sound, when they would come into land on the lake would be deafening.

.... they stroll through here in smidgens..... 20-40 at a time....... the noise that they make is worth the time spent standing in the cold to watch them........
