By The Water

The Canada Steamship Lines “Baie Comeau” heads for the lake.

Normally, much of my time by the water is while working at the Minnesota Slip Bridge.  Last week I took a break from the bridge to spend some time in the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness.  Instead of watching the ships go by, I was watching other canoes, loons, eagles and osprey.  One thing is for sure, any time spent by the water is quality time.  For me, it makes no difference if it’s the inner harbor in Duluth, or a small lake we’ve just portaged into.  Water is a rejuvenator and energizer.  It’s a source of peace and inspiration.  When I’m away from water for extended periods of time, it’s as if part of me is missing and I’m excited to return to the sights and sounds of water.
