We’ve had a lot of rain the last week or so. It hasn’t been warm but not cold enough for snow other than a few sprinkles overnight. That snow hasn’t stayed around. My husband and I waited for a break in the weather to go for a walk along the boardwalk.
The deciduous trees are bare and everything was wet and dreary.
However, the sun was trying to find an opening through the heavy overcast and periodically gave us hope of clearing skies.
A ship was on its way out of the harbour
and another waited off-shore for a place at the wharf. While we watched, the scene changed dramatically as snow squalls moved through.
The vessel, the Mandarin, wasn’t more than a blur for several minutes but the squall didn’t last long.
Even on a dreary day, there is always something beautiful to see.
These rose hips with the drops of water hanging from them were in their seasonal glory.
And as always, the little animals never disappoint.
