There is open water by the bridge
but looking out the bay, the ice is solid. Far from shore, equipment and people are on the ice.
Two quads with four people are working at an oyster bed site. Work continues there all winter in spite of the ice.
The conditions this day are perfect.
It is zero degrees Celsius with little wind. The sun is bright and strong. In the distance, a truck is on the ice by a fishing shack.
It is a perfect day for smelt fishing too. However, rising temperatures with the warmth of the sun will make the ice unsafe before long.
Spring is in the air.
