For me, there’s nothing more rejuvenating than a long, brisk walk on a sunny afternoon. Gets the juices flowing, and the oxygen traveling to the brain. Blows out the cobwebs. You get the idea.
Nice, clean water
As the title of this post implies, it was low tide when I arrived at the water. It was very clear at the marina. No engine oil or other human generated crap this time of year.
As you can see, there wasn’t much water in the salt pond. See the water tower in the distance? Ospreys nest there every year. They’re usually back by early March.
When I got to the beach there were quite a few people and dogs enjoying the sun and sand. Two discarded Christmas trees had washed up, looking kind of like beached whales.
A couple was walking three happy yellow labs. It was funny watching them, because the people and the dogs were almost constantly tangled up together. The dogs didn’t seem to mind, though.
A gaggle of labs!
Three ducks were chilling in the marsh. The hunting season’s over, so they can land without having their heads blown off.
This swan paddled over quickly when he or she saw me. Swans normally live in pairs, so I don’t know whether this one was hungry or just lonely.
As I got back to our street, I saw my first dandelion. Spring is definitely on the way.
