Break-up

Evidence of spring is visible at low tide along the beach. The ice is melting and snow is collapsing and crystallizing along the shoreline and on the harbour. The sand is exposed in some areas now.



Cracks in the ice run parallel to the shoreline. 




At high tide, the sea fills the openings in the ice. 




Spring break-up has begun.

Nice photos though not the kind that I'd usually associate with Spring. Your optimism is admirable!
