Every year on the anniversary of my grandaddy's birthday, we go to Mason Neck State Park to look for bald eagles. Eagles are particularly special to our family; the first birthday after grandaddy passed, we saw 9. This past October, my great-grandmother passed away and a bald eagle followed our car to the gravesite. So this year, my heart was filled to the brim when we saw two bald eagles fishing together when we arrived in the park.
