As if I didn't have enough hobbies, with camping, cycling, hiking, cooking and gardening, my husband purchased a new toy—a canoe.
Living on a peninsula provides many potential canoeing sites. This past weekend we chose a secluded spot and were rewarded with an abundance of wildlife. A plethora (love that word) of ospreys soared overhead, their loud kyews whistling through the air. My camera captured a few. I stopped counting great blue heron at ten, but they were too quick to photograph. Forget even trying to catch the green heron. Several river otters dove into the water on our approach, leaving me focusing my camera in vain.
A pleasant distraction, but I need to get back to work, writing. I have a submission to get out, a WIP to edit, and a new story to start—life as a writer.
What are your pleasant distractions?
