Celebrating with water birds
Little Yoni, Janis truck and I got to spend a few hours at Lake Caballo on my birthday .
The water and sky were filled with birds.
In search of pelicans, we paddled and paddled toward a white huddle on a distant sand spit. It was a flock of gulls.
The one legged heron watched it all, unperturbed from a no wake bollard.
Last light turned the lake into a Rorschach test.
It wasn’t the Kerala beach birthday I had planned, but it was still a day full of gifts of Chihuahuan desert style sun, sand, sky and water
