It was a Sunday afternoon. I wanted desperately to get away from the crowds. It had been a hectic week followed by an equally hectic Saturday. I took a drive to Lower Peirce Reservoir. It was surprisingly quiet. Only two other families playing around but out of earshot. I noticed the boat by the pierside. It was so quiet and still. The water around the boat hardly moved even though there was a slight breeze blowing. Tranquility. Priceless.
