Pure unadulterated joy!



We just got back from the cabin and I had to share this Loon sighting with you! I usually have to go to the neighboring big lake to see the Loons, but now I have my own loons on my little lake heaven. And I haven't told you the best part yet.....

P.S. If someone can guess before midnight tomorrow, I will send you one of my Loon greeting cards as a prize. Must be a U.S. citizen and have a blog. :-)

That is an amazing shot of the Loon. I love them. We get them near out cabin once in a while. While we were out kayaking last weekend there was one nearby that called several times during the night. That sound always means Canada to me. - Margy

I have been anxiously awaiting this beautiful photo Shelley. You must be on cloud nine! I am guessing you have babies too. That's good for us too because I know you will share pics with us!

Shelley said...

Tammy & Mildred - good guesses but not quite..... :-)

Baby Loon --by all means!!!!!!! Did you see Mama and Daddy Loon???? Sounds like they must be close to your dock this year... That is totally amazing.... I'm so happy for you and cannot wait to see more pictures.

Hugs,

Well---I just read your comment to Mildred and Tammy---so I'll bet that Mama is sitting on her nest now....

Are YOU gonna have a baby maybe? Your place reminds me of our summer home on the Indian River in DE. I love the pics you post on your blog - just beautiful and so uplifting! Keep it up!

This is a wonderful picture that goes perfectly with your title. I'm guessing that you've got a loon nest with eggs at your cabin.

There are TWO soon-to-be mama loons and they are nesting on your shore and they have an affinity for goofy PJ pants? Ok that was three guesses, but one of them has to be right!

Smiles,

grammy said...

The best part is there is a nest with eggs...well or maybe babies already (o:
Great photo!

The Retired One said...

I would guess you either found a nest with eggs or the babies already....can't wait, either way.
Loved the last loon photo, but this one was really neat..you can see the splash drops and everything...just gorgeous!!!!

Daisy said...

I'm happy for you, Shelley. Another great photo! Everyone else took my guess already. :-)

Busy Bee Suz said...

I know nothing brings you more joy than the loons.
I am guessing there are babies for you to enjoy as well.
Glad you had a nice weekend.

Debbie said...

I was going suggest a nest or babies already.

Hey.... I need your address. You won one of the book giveaways. There is another that I will be drawing for on Thursday if you would like to enter it too!

*hugs*

I'm far too far away to enter but I'll happily share your good news when it's revealed. FAB.

PatsyAnne said...

A nest near your dock and eggs in it! Or even better yet, they've hatched!

What a fantastic shot, Shelley!

Just a little something from Judy said...

Really...your own Loons and little babies on the way? It just sounds too good to be true. Am I right? Beautiful photo!
