Clouds don't often look like things to me, but today, there was a strip of white across the sky that had above it three waves looking exactly like wave breaking on the shore.

Driving out of the complex, I saw a fox prudently stopping on the slope down to the road, giving it the eye.  Looked a little thin and very red -- but I've never seen a fox in the wild before.

Driving after a cement mixer down a narrow road with growth to either side can be interesting.  The grass -- especially where it has grown tall enough to go to seed -- lying down flat beside it, the leaves rustling -- for a height.  Above that height, they don't stir.  Neither does any of the greenery on the other side of the road.
