Lunch on the Mississippi
During his recent visit home, my son Tony and I spent a day fishing on The Father of Waters. We took a break for lunch, floating down the Minnesota shoreline, only to discover we weren't alone in that endeavor. We saw a pair of immature eagles circling above us when a high pitched squawking noise drew our attention to the trees along the shoreline, slightly downstream. Take a look....
Apparently, we weren't the only successful fishermen that day.
Nor about to have lunch!
After snapping these quick photos we drifted on past so the two circling fledglings could feel safe enough to join their mom for a fish lunch.
