Kaefer had a big cross country meet at the lake yesterday morning. They were the first group to run, so we arrived at the lake even before the sun had risen over the hill. The mist was still hanging over the lake, but you could see how the sky already cleared up. It was a perfect autumn morning, the kind I love.
When the sun climbed higher into the sky, he illuminated this bare tree and the surrounding trees on this little island. The lake itself was perfectly still.
It almost looked as if the water was on fire.
The ducks took flight from all those people who were there so untypically early.
And here's Kaefer (in blue) making the finish line.
The magic of the morning had gone by then.
