Late March 2015

You know the old saying about March: In Like a Lion – Out with a ROAR! Okay that is not really the saying, that is just more whine from Mark. It is snowing as I type this. Wink and I agree, enough already. So for your viewing enjoyment, the lingering winter:

It is not all that bad. We have been getting an occasional nice day. But the critters are still hungry.

There is nothing like a hearty breakfast after a spring walk. Here is a bed of cottage fried potatoes, asparagus, broccoli and a fried egg with a side of fruit.

So we are seeing signs of spring, but winter continues to linger. The bay is frozen in the morning but the tide and sun break up the ice pretty quickly. The house and yard and it’s inhabitants continue to provide a great deal of delight and amusement.

PS – I got a new camera with 83 X optical zoom. It is a Nikon Coolpix P900. Here is the sign on the point that we use as a reference for optical quality.

Blogging and picture taking remains fun.
