The Drone Operator

We took advantage of the mild weather today and got out of the house. We took a drive to a park in the middle of the city that was one of our favorite places for many years. The winding road took us to the top of the bluffs overlooking the city. Once there, we parked and walked on the paved path to get the best view. It was beautiful. We pointed out landmarks and realized how much the city has grown. On the way back to the car, we heard and saw a drone flying overhead. As we approached the parking lot, we saw the operator on the sidewalk with controller in hand. We watched him for a while and was impressed as he landed the drone on the walk right in front of him. It just so happened that he was parked right next to us. As he came over, my dad told him he liked his “fancy gadget”. We chatted with him and his brother for a while. They said they were from Chicago and were enjoying getting pictures of the beautiful Colorado scenery. We wished each other well before we parted ways. It was so good to get out of the house, enjoy the fresh air, and have an interesting conversation with a stranger.

I Found God today enjoying a day out.
