The Loons

July 3, 2013 by Ellen Stimson in Uncategorized

AR-709099921 Ice House Pond on Martha’s Vineyard is one of New England’s most pristine ponds. Think pond on a movie set and you will just about have it. Surrounded by a piney wood and filled with the softest moss underfoot this place is utterly sublime. And we are here for a whole month! I was already feeling like I am quite possibly the luckiest girl in the whole world, only then, things got even better. The loons swam by and and seemed to call goodnight to us. I swear. Their sounds echoed off the pond and floated right onto our deck. I felt like a character in On Golden Pond. Oh my…that’s really about the best I can do. Oh my oh my…..the blessings seem to be piling up around here these days. Here’s wishing everyone a summer filled with sunshine and happy splashing….

    There aren’t any loons in Ballwin–at least not the winged variety. But I love hearing them in movies and television shows.
