My Favourite Bird and Earth Day

Carolina Wren
The birds seem to love the blue feeding dish in the cedar tree.
Especially when it snows...and it was snowing last week at this time (April 15).
Five days later (April 20), it was warm enough to enjoy the beach on Lake Huron.
A little shell heart for Earth Day!
“In every walk with nature one receives far more than he seeks.” —John Muir
Happy Earth Day!

A Week Later

We took another day trip to The Pinery Provincial Park on Easter Sunday.
 The Ausable River

 The beach on Lake Huron, looks a lot different than last Sunday!
You can see the difference HERE
The lake is no longer frozen!
 No editing on these shots, the sky was really that blue.

A Busy Week

"The only reason for time is so that everything doesn't happen at once."
Albert Einstein
Well, everything is happening at once, but it's all good.
I have a very busy week ahead, so I am taking a blogging break.
See you next week.

A Day Out

Saturday was our first real spring like day. The temperature was 17C degrees.
We took a trip to the Pinery Provincial Park (Ontario, Canada).
Within the park is the Ausable River, where these photos were taken.
There was no snow in the woods, and the river was ice free.
Lake Huron also borders the park, where the photos below were taken.
Unlike the forest area, the lake was still frozen.  
Those are not white cap waves, it's ice. 
The brown areas are snow banks (on the frozen water) with sand on them.

 There was about 4 feet of open water at the shore.
I took off my shoes and socks, rolled up my pant legs and waded in!
The water wasn't as cold as you'd think!
