This week I fulfilled another decades long dream. The last few weeks I’ve seen (and photographed) the green heron. A couple of days ago, I was at Lake Neatahwanta and THE sea plane landed on the water. Since I was a kid I’ve wanted to see this. I did on my 50th birthday see a sea plane land on Lake Ontario. It was bright red and landed literally in front of me. Two guys jumped out got dinner at the Rudy’s Fish stand and took off again. But that wasn’t THE plane. I live on the flight path for the Fulton Airport. This is a very small airport where biplanes and the like land so I see planes and helicopters all the time. Over the years, I’ve seen this silver sea plane go over head and I’ve always wondered — what does it do at the lake? Does it just land and take off? Do they go fishing? Are they visiting someone? Well this week, I got my wish as I watched the plane — land and take off and land and take off. We were on opposite ends of the lake with low light so the photos didn’t come out so well. But the thought for the day is never give up on having your dreams fulfilled. Enjoy your walk with nature. (as always click to enlarge any photo).
