Have you ever tried taking a picture of something far away only to find out that your camera automatically focused in on a closer object? Apparently my eyes were wired that way this morning. Brian and I are staying at a quaint bed and breakfast that’s situated on a river in Peoria, Illinois. Our bedroom has two large windows to offer a gorgeous view of the water.
But I don’t see the water.
What I do see are about 200 bugs (I’ll call them river bugs) that are going to die any minute now. These are quite large river bugs and they’re pretty much all caught in a spider web death trap outside my window. I’m not going to lie; the scene is pretty upsetting – the struggling, flapping and twisting to get free. I have a feeling that I’m going to remember this sick feeling long after I’ve forgotten the name of this place.
