Soaring with Eagles

Well, maybe a more appropriate title would be "Wishing I was Soaring With Eagle". Jim and I just needed to get away yesterday. We decided it would be really cool to do some Eagle watching. There are areas along the Missouri River bluffs where Eagles are known to soar, especially this time of year. They are magnificent birds and one of my dreams has always been to see one. So... we dusted off our very old binocular (guess what Jim is going to get for a birthday present...), grabbed the camera, hat, gloves, and coats and headed out for a day of roaming the back roads.
After hours of driving gravel roads and scanning the skies, we had to admit defeat. No eagles were to be seen. But it didn't matter. We spent a really good day together away from the telephone. So maybe next week, or the week after that, or the week after that... one of these days I will see an Eagle! I just know it!
