looking for spring

Yesterday, we took a wee spin down along the Fundy coastline. The day was brilliant, the latest rain storm took care of most of the snow, and Spring is most definitely in the air! Everything is still grey and brown, though but that could change in a snap, when the temperatures go up, as they’re supposed to do next week.

Lepreau FallsWe took the usual tour of the quaint, little fishing villages … Chance Harbour, Dipper Harbour, Maces Bay and so on. Didn’t bring my tripod even though I knew we’d go to Lepreau Falls. What was I thinking?! Nothing at all, probably.

Saw several Blue Herons in a marsh, but they were way too far off for any good shots. One of them took off, while I was standing there, watching, and it’s always great to see those blue, majestic wings!

Scoter DucksEven though I’ve been down this way many times now, I always enjoy it! It’s so beautiful and there’s always the chance of seeing some odd duck ๐Ÿ™‚ — this time didn’t disappoint! [Please, click on pictures for better viewing!]

It was great to get out and breathe the saline air. When we got back, I was out on the balcony, doing something, and it struck me that it was actually enjoyable out there, although I was just wearing a T-shirt. We’re definitely out of the โ€œPolar Vortexโ€ ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. Wow, those are one cool looking pair of ducks! Are they shellfish eaters, by any chance? (Just guessing by that heavily reinforced beak…)
