Spring

Yesterday, we decided to go out for a drive and headed up to Cape George Lighthouse, which sits on Cape George Point in Antigonish County.  The weather was sunny and we looked out across St George's Bay, where sea ice was still visible as a white line in the distance.


Along with remnants of snow in the more sheltered spots.  The sky was clear and blue; a sight which we have not seen in recent weeks.


This last photograph shows the coastline looking south.  The temperature on the coast was 9 C although the forecast high was a lot higher: the wind keeps the temperature lower by the water.  It was lovely to get out and breathe some fresh air after too long indoors and to take a short break from our packing.  Back to reality today though, as the packing and emptying of our basement continues.

GORGEOUS views, Marie! I love a coastal scene with lighthouse in view...*sigh*... It looks very pretty, such wonderful natural beauty. Hope all is going OK getting ready for your move. Stop now & then to enjoy the view--which will hopefully be snow-free soon. ;o) Happy Spring, my friend ((LOVE & HUGS))
