One of the things about living in Southern Ontario is that we get these long periods where the temperatures hang in the low single digits with overcast skies week after week. We’re in one of these slumps right now.
A couple of days this week I managed to get down to the beach twice – once during the day and again in the evening. On the 27th it was foggy. You couldn’t see much looking across the bay so I didn’t bother posting a picture.
On the 29th I did my daily beach walk, but I decided to head out in the evening and walk down a tributary of the Nottawasaga River near our house. The main part of the river is swollen this time of year and flowing pretty fast, but just a stream below. I didn’t see any beavers, but lots of evidence they are active.
The picture below is pretty cool. There was obviously some run-off that caused a steep bank to erode and collapse toward the river. Note the tree down below that slid right down under the suspended fence.
We got a winter storm on March 30th that really didn’t amount to much, but this is the same day as Mom and Dad were arriving back from Florida so we were watching the road conditions.
Mom joined me on March 31st in the early afternoon for my daily walk down the beach. She said this was a good reminder of why she and Dad go to Florida for the Winter!
April 1st was a beautiful day with the sun shining brightly. I’m not sure, but this might be the first seagull I’ve seen this year. As sure sign that Spring is on the way.
Looking across the bay. We have open water in close to shore now but still layers of ice to on the lake. You can see there is still snow on the ski hills at Blue Mountain below.
