A Winter Walk About…

Finally warm enough, to be out and about.

In the neighborhood…some move in.

And some move out…

But in any direction,

all around…

A wicked winter view is found❄️

Tire-d of ice…?

Just in case you are not… 😎

The recipe…

On the fence between winter and spring…

Is the only time the you can gather the ingredients.  A few days of the taste of what’s to come, increase temperature, to melt ice in large body of water. Reduce temp, to below freezing…carefully mix in wind till stiff.  Let wind blow till desired thickness coats shoreline.

Add sunshine and let sit, till setting…

Feast on the view, of not quite there yet…

We share the shore…

Connected to the pond, is the great lake, flowing on to the river and then to the ocean…the waterway, our bridge to the rest of the world.  A view from the shore along the way.

Crossing a bridge, 1000 islands…St. Lawrence river

Open water…the last splash

The wait this year has been a test of patience…the winter that won’t end, as we long for the view of open water. Weekend warriors of winter have finally been  foiled as it is the first weekend, April fool’s has finally curtailed their persistence.  The ice finally becoming unsafe for the fodder.

It always amazes me how long they try and hang on…venturing in my view, risking it all, on the edge of melting ice.

But certain as the ugly duck (merganser) winter wains away, finally some signs of relief…as sure as the swan is more lovely, although still white.

As we patiently still wait for the last splash of winter…
