Misty Morning

I briefly woke up very early this morning, just long enough to admire this misty view on the water. The air temperature was very cool, so there was a lot of mist coming up off the relatively warmer water. It's one of my favorite things to see in the early morning - it just seems so peaceful. When I used to live in western Coventry (way out near the Connecticut border), I used to enjoy driving to work in the morning along Route 14 in Scituate. Rt. 14 passes through the middle of the Scituate Reservoir and often there would be a similar misty view if I left for work early enough. Since there are no houses on the reservior, it would feel like I was driving out in some wilderness forest on a lake up in Maine. It was a very relaxing way to start the day.

At one point this morning while I was staring out the window, a goose flew by along the surface of the water and left a path in the mist. It might be hard to make out the path in this picture. (You can click on either of these pictures to get a larger view.)

After snapping a few pictures, I then went back to bed to get some more much needed sleep.
