Water flowing and free, duck swimming leisurely.  A plane passes overhead, holidaymakers over the bridge, artist drawing balanced on a ridge. Calm is the wind, few clouds in the sky, birds are singing, life just passes by.

Peaceful is the atmosphere, just stand and think.

Is that there squirrel giving me a wink?!


Peaceful at the River
