First Beach Visit of the Year!


DSC_0444It’s raining today and normal March temperatures in the 50s have resumed, but a few weekends ago it hit nearly 80 degrees!

With the sunshine and warm weather (and a bit of Spring Fever induced craziness) Claire and I took an evening stroll to the lake front to feed the fish and dip our toes in the water. My poor toes! Claire seems impervious to the cold and happily splashed around in the f-r-e-e-z-i-n-g water until I dragged her out by her belt loops.

While I buried my feet in the warm sand to warm them up, a neighbor’s dog came down for a game of fetch and Claire scurried around searching for sand toys and tossing pieces of bread to the fish (who never showed up) and snacking on the remaining pieces. We saw one lone duck and lots of hawks overhead but it seems most of the summer wildlife has yet to arrive or wakeup.
