How’s everyone doing? Are you waiting for Spring to really start? I know it’s supposed to be officially here, but I hadn’t seen it yet.
So my buddy Cookie and I headed out into the campground today to find it. We were kind of disappointed that the snow was still close to knee deep in spots, but there were a lot of bare spots too! Especially at the lake point.
I had to keep a very, very close eye on Cookie too because she goes bonkers for open water, and there was plenty of that to be found!
While we walked the snowshoe trail, we saw places where it looked like the deer might have lain down. And look at this . . .
I’d say those busy beavers have been hard at work, wouldn’t you?
Cookie and I said hi to the eagle who’s sitting high on her throne nest.
We’re really looking forward to seeing eagle babies!
We saw the wood duck pair today too! Down by the beaver hut.
I’ve always wanted to see their babies, especially in that moment where they drop from their tree nest, to the ground and head for the water. I bet that’s really cool to watch.
Cookie and I agreed, we’d seen lots of signs of Spring, and we were about to head for home when we heard honking. No, not car honking . . .
Goose honking! There was a whole flock in that little patch of open water.
I’m very surprised Cookie didn’t take off after them – she’s not very trained on “stay”. Not like I am anyway . . .
I took one last photo on my way back from the lake . . .
The owner of this camper can’t wait for Spring either! I bet she could tell you, right down to the minute, how many days we have left before camp opens . . .
It won’t be long now!
