I trust this email finds you doing well and that you are full of excitement as you drink your coffee thinking about the week ahead.

If you have paid any attention to the news this week it has been one with some amazing stories of weather and the dust storm in Phoenix and in sports with the US Women’s Soccer team come from behind victory in the World Cup. I would think there could have been nothing to top either but – watching the Shuttle Atlantis launch into space Friday morning, for the very last time in the history of the US space program, would have to top my list. It was a very emotional moment for me, those that live the space program and I am sure for the millions that watched. I was filled with pride and saddened with sorrow thinking that this will be the very last time in the history of the US Space Program that this majestic vehicle will soar into space. We are a country that looks skyward and a nation full of dreams and I trust that we will again do both soon. God Speed Atlantis!

With that, I give you the beauty and serenity of a white Heron hunting for its next appetizer silhouetted by the setting sun in the Pamlico Sound of the Outer Banks. This beautiful creature continues to soar over the islands.
