Yesterday marked the first day of my favorite season of the year. True I love summer vegetable season and am really syarting to enjoy the fall vegetable season, there is nothing that , for me anyways, compares to waterfowl (duck and goose) season. The crisp fall mornings, the sights, sounds, and smells of the marsh. The sound of the wings as they fly over, and the different calls of different species. The anticipation of the dog as he awaits each retrieve. The precision marking and work performed by the dog. The smiles on a childs face as he learns to enjoy watching nature and enjoying her bounty. I'm in heaven now and it will only get better as the temperatures drop and the weather gets nastier.
