Had life's most amazing experience today. No exaggeration.
K. and I were swimming across the lake.
"Look," she said, pointing. "An eagle."
I spun around and watched as a very large bald eagle glided across the lake, flew just a few feet over our heads, and then, just a couple of feet beyond us, dove and grabbed a fish right out of the lake.
The bird wheeled around, transferred the fish from his feet to his mouth, and soared back across the lake and into a high branch of a douglas fir at the edge of the lake.
And that's what happens when you're swimming, and not lying on the couch playing solitaire.
Here's the video I could have taken: Fly Like an Eagle.
