A perfect moment

I went to the beach this afternoon, my favorite spot at Sportsmen's Lake.  The river is very low, exposing as much of the nice sand as ever.  I took a beach towel and just lay on the sand for a while, and then I walked around.  A couple of hundred yards away was a scene out of a coffee table book.  The river itself was very nice, and no works of man intruded on the view.  About five deer were playing at the edge of the water.  A heron was in the water near them.  They were far enough away that neither deer nor heron noticed me at all.  I didn't bring a camera, so I have to settle for writing about it.
