I woke up at dawn and stared at the window in front of the bed waiting until it was light enough to take a picture. When we arrived last night, the countryside was blanketed in darkness. We did not get a chance to see the lake or the garden behind the house. I tiptoed towards the window and pressed the camera lens against the cold glass. Thick fog surrounded the property. I could only see an overturned rowing boat on the edge of the lake. I clicked the shutter. I pulled back the lens and and it left a circle mark on the surface. I was about to settle under the covers when I decided to turn and look back. This was what I saw.
