Weekly Photo Challenge: Life Watching the Water


The Weekly Photo Challenge is: H2O

“It is life, I think, to watch the water. A man can learn so many things.”                    ― Nicholas Sparks

Living on an island in front of the 11th largest fresh water lake in the world, I have learned so many things.

The ferries are our umbilical cord to the mainland. I have learned to tell time by watching them pass by our front door daily.

I have learned that water is the driving force of nature. We are recovering from a three-year drought. It has been so hard on the cows, birds, and horses.

  1. Beautiful pictures. Always nice to see those. And indeed we do need water to survive. I always have water pans all over my yard for all the wildlife that happens by. Water is scarce in the desert.
