Late afternoon at Miles Wildlife Sanctuary

silhouette, originally uploaded by jahansell.

It has been too long since we visited the Audubon sanctuary where we used to live. When we got there, my 5 year old daughter said, "What's this place?" She was born here, and we moved away when she was just over a year old. Her big sister remembered it well, having been 4 1/2 at the time. We walked the trail around the pond, and I marveled at all the changes in the last few years. I will always feel attached to this place - as my daughter pointed out, it's a mansion! and the 1200 acres of forest and swamp are a magical place - I had a moment of wishing we still loved lived here [thanks, Nathalie, for pointing out that Freudian error!] , now that the kids are old enough to really fill it with their imaginations and learn from the nature around them.

This is such a sweet photo; the way the sun's reflection is caught under your daughter's arm...it is as though she has caught a sun ray all of her own. You say you lived there...did you work there?

What a beautiful post! I understand how you feel!

Did you notice you wrote 'I wish we still loved here' instead of 'we still lived here' - revealing lapsus, Dr Freud!
