Quiet Pond

Mak launches for our morning swim.SAM_1247cropBut it had begun to rain and he repeatedly tried to turn back for shore.  So I conceded, brought him back to the house and toweled him off before returning to the pond myself.  By that time it was raining more heavily.SAM_1247aI swam to the middle and sat on the buoy.vlcsnap-2016-08-06-12h17m45s769The shower ended.  With a mercifully overcast sky, I didn’t have to squint in the sun.  I was the only one in the still water; and neither saw nor heard anyone on shore.  A catbird called.  I sat on the buoy for quite some time.  This is the way I like it.  Quiet.
