There was a definite chill in the air, but there was plenty of activity on the lake.  Many of
our area locals were out, and there was plenty of breathing space for the ducks, even though
a watchful Bald Eagle was west of the Southern Cove.  Our friends were gathering and partaking
of what was found in the area.  Frost was covering the ground, yet my footsteps were in silence.
In gratitude, my eyes were west, but the eagle disappeared as quickly as it was seen...
