Explore Roll On, The Clouds and more!

On our walk along the Mighty Mississippi, we come to this riverside glade, shimmering in the sunshine. The wide and steady river rolls on past, and on the far bank we see an impressive stand of trees. The river itself is a deep blue, reflecting the cloud studded sky above, and we can see just two old style boats going up-stream. All is peaceful and calm, and our minds are clear of the everyday by this warm and friendly scene.

High on a bluff the trail suddenly emerges from the surrounding trees and the view opens up; the lake below, shimmering green in the sunlight; the forest land marching into the distance on all sides; and faintly, way on the horizon, the hint of more flatlands and forest.

From the beach at Dover, Kent, England.  Dover Castle dominates the landscape, built as it is on top of the famous White Cliffs of Dover. Closer to us are modern buildings, and here on the shingle beach some small boats are pulled up on shore.  Back when I was a child the Castle and the buildings were there, and the beach,of course, but instead of a couple of pleasure craft, this beach was full of working fishing boats.

Although King's Lynn is known for the River Great Ouse, there are many smaller rivers that feed into the main waterway, and her we meet the Gaywood River.  Gaywood River nowadays hardly affects the community at all, but between two areas of housing the river ambles along.  The buildings and trees reflect in the still waters, and the sky seems bluer in reflection than in the sky.

Evening is coming, and the clouds reflecting on the water are lit by the setting sun. Out on the lake two fishermen are contemplating their days "work", but from our perspective we see their dark shadows mirrored in the still water.  A time to just stand and breath, and wonder at the quiet spectacle of the world.

The Mississippi River has many faces.   Our walk along the shoreline takes us really close to the water's edge, and from here we can see nothing but calm water, reflecting the blue sky.   The river and the sky meet in a shoreline of sand and trees, and we are not really sure where the river is flowing, both banks seem to be the same.

Every day the sun sets, this is just another day, another sunset.   And yet each sunset is different, each sunset is uniquely special.   As we sit and contemplate the sun sinking into the river, we are struck with awe at the routine magnificence of the sight. It is just another sunset, but this one is ours.

We stop as we take our summer walk along the River Great Ouse in Norfolk, England, and see that we are approaching a bend in the stream. The market town of Kings Lynn is seen in the distance, the brick and stone painted buildings reflecting on the still water. Nothing seems to be moving, there is no breeze to disturb the gently running water, and the sky is a wispy blue. All is calm and still, and we are at peace with the world.

Stopping on a small dyke, we look along the stretch of water and are amazed at the simple beauty of the scene. Much of this area of West Norfolk, England, would be wetland, were it not for the Land Drain system that keeps the land drained. The words Land Drain somehow seem prosaic and utilitarian, but over time even these man-made artifacts have become a part of the countryside. The only hint that this is not a natural feature can be seen in the straight line of the waterway as it ....
