I turn my head to the parking lot and find a pretty little girl with light blonde hair, maybe eight or nine, walking my way. For a second I have a hard time answering.

“Hello,” I finally manage.

“Have you seen our heron?” she asks, stopping to look at the water’s edge, her eyes squinting against the setting sun. I automatically follow suit.

“No. I’ve sat here for a while, but I haven’t seen one. Do you see it often?”

I look over and find she’s come around the front and lowers herself on the step. “It’s a great white heron,” she informs me in her melodic singsong voice, keeping her eyes focused on the water. “There are lots of blue herons around, the white herons are more rare, but there’s one who comes here at night to fish.”

“I don’t think I’ve ever seen a white heron,” I admit, following her gaze out on the cove.


My eyes dart to the main house. All I can see is a pair of arms braced on the railing of the porch. The rest of the man’s body isn’t visible.

“Coming!” the girl yells back, getting up from her perch on my steps. She turns to me. “I have to go.”

“Okay, honey. I’m gonna sit here for a little longer. I’ll keep my eye open for your heron.”

Instead of doing that, I follow the girl’s bouncing blonde hair as she crosses the parking lot to the main house.
