Owl in the Night

Tonight, my husband and I went for our first training walk. It felt really great. As we were walking, we noticed a large bird shaped shadow perched atop an evergreen tree. When we got closer we realized that the shadow was owl-shaped. Sure enough, when we got as close as we could get and I made a noise, its head swiveled around and gave us an inscrutable owl-y stare before flying off into the night.

My husband and I have never seen an owl in real life. Growing up in the woods as I did, I would always hear a lone owl hooting into the night but had never actually caught glimpse of that lonely soul.

Maybe exercise doesn't suck.
