Finding peace in our over-scheduled lives is not always easy. Some days, it's practically impossible, that is unless you are in a canoe drifting quietly, effortlessly on Mead's Quarry Lake.
Dodging the rain showers in the area, this morning's canoe cruise featured two hours of sereneness. We had the lake with towering limestone cliff stained rusty red all to ourselves. Just us and the geese, turtles, phoebes, swallows and vultures gliding over the placid water.
The next guided canoe trip will be Saturday morning June 22.
