Sunday morning I awoke at about 6 A.M. I could hardly wait to go outside, enjoy the fresh air, and see what the big city of Coralville looks like before people wake up.
The man-made waterfall on the left creates a pleasant optical diversion from the parking garage behind it. The sculpture on the right was at the end of our walk on one side of the hotel. Called Tipping Point, it is one of the better sculptures of the Iowa River Landing Sculpture Walk (I actually kind of like it). Another "sculpture" we saw looked just like a bunch of scrap metal cut from a rusty old grain bin or hog building and welded to rusty old rebar. Some people do have an interesting perspective on what is called art...
Along the walkway in the wetlands there were various educational signs telling about the local wildlife and ecosystem.
From the observation stand, one can look out over the wetlands area on the right. Further on our walk, we saw a fish about a foot long near the bank of the creek. We also saw a duck swimming and saw footprints of other animals, possibly beaver.
The touch of God's hand lends all nature its beauty--the fog, the water, and the flowers. As the Bible says, the Lord giveth us richly all things to enjoy! (1 Timothy 6:17)
I'm thankful for a beautiful morning!
