Take to the Sky

As promised, here is a mini post which I scheduled to appear while I'm back up at the cottage. I'll catch up with you folks sometime after cottage season winds down.


While walking Benny in the fields across from Frank's place, the clouds and sunlight made for a dramatic sky. The helicopter was bonus.




And speaking of flight, this young man is Winston, my neighbour across the street, and big brother to baby Lily who was featured a few posts back. He and his Dad were flying this glider around in the park, one afternoon. I think this boy will be a pilot one day.

Another scheduled mini-post coming up soon!

Funny I was so busy noticing the sunbeams that I didn't even notice the helicopter at first.

I love the expression you caught on his face.

I have been looking at the sky so much all summer, hoping for a good picture, but I cannot hope for something as outstanding as this. I really love the rays and the small helicopter.
