Early spring at Cavendish

The sun draws us outside these days, even when the the wind is high. Such was the case yesterday when my husband and I headed to Cavendish Beach for a walk. The desire to be outside again is strong now as the daylight hours are lengthening and the sun feels warm.


Beach access was denied but we stopped at the look-out area nearby. 





Much of the ice which was packed against the shoreline weeks ago 



                                                                               March 13/19

has disappeared. Now pans of ice float in the Gulf of St Lawrence and are piled against the shoreline in a few areas.










We walked around the look-out, took some photos and left quickly. Georgie, the golden grand-dog was the only one who was warm.

Georgie has a nice, warm fur coat, that's why!

Yes, it's still early spring, but what a difference from just a few days ago! Love to see that pretty dog. :-)

Must be nice to see the ice breaking up after the long winter Marie. Georgie is snug as a bug in a rug in fur coat 😊

That looks like one happy dog but CHILLY out there. Doesn't father Winter know it's April?

We have had full sun for the last few days but icy, cold, strong North East winds blowing not that nice. Happy Weekend Diane

Look! Real dirt! Too cold for me, though.

At least Georgie has patience waiting for you to catch up. Good to see the ice disappearing for you. :)

It's interesting to see how much has melted in a couple of weeks. May the thaw continue apace!

What a difference a few days make.
Brrr...that looks cold but certainly beautiful.
I like the bits of ice floating down the water.

I think that may be early, early spring! Would love to see this type of weather again.

We are having our first autumn weekend here now - much cooler than the last few weeks.
