Remember this? Well, I had a similar experience this weekend, except my husband and two of our friends were there to witness it. WE saw an Eagle! The four of us went for a friday afternoon, knock off of work and paddle down the French Broad sec 9. A great way to start the weekend and shed any frustration from the week!
We were slowly floating just above a rapid called The Maze when suddenly MRB, in a clear calm voice, said “There is an Eagle. Looks, there is an Eagle.” After about 3 times of him saying it we caught sight of the magnificent, clear as day white headed bird. This is no mistake my friends! We have a resident Eagle at our local river.
Mind you, we are not located in the wide open spaces of Colorado or the PNW. We are in North Carolina. The southeast. This is a luxury and something to admire!
No, no photos. We were so still, and stunned by its flight that we bypassed technology and breathed in the moment.
