We heard it! We stopped to quiet our talking and movement to intently listen. We heard it again! What an unusual sound to hear in the middle of the day, in the middle of a crowded place, which only made the sound more inviting. Grasping Benjamin's arm, we were off on an adventure. Looking up into the large trees our eyes were concentrating on finding the source of the unusual sound. We scanned the trees for an owl at five in the afternoon in triple-digit weather.
It stopped. We moved another direction to see if we could capture the sight of this owl that was hooting during the day. We were unsuccessful. As we turned back to the pool area Benjamin voiced his frustration, "that was my first opportunity to see an owl and we didn't find it."
I was still trying to figure out why an owl was hooting when we walked out of the pool area my eyes caught this..........
Yes! what we believed to be real was indeed fake.
How many times in life do I chase what I believe to be real to only find out it is fake? How many times do I allow Satan to hand me a counterfeit? The only way for me to know the real from the fake is to stay close to the real. As you can tell from this post I do not know a real "hoot" from from a fake. It was a "hoot" of an adventure.
