A little sunshine (although temperatures were only in the upper 20s), and my trusty old camera (I'm still using the one I bought back in 2005!) persuaded me to bundle up and take a little walk yesterday.
I think it was these gorgeous flowers my daughter received from her boyfriend that finally convinced me that Spring must be on the way. :) Aren't they beautiful!?!
There's still lots of ice.
The snow fences are still up, but other than this little bit of graffiti, the lakefront area was very clean. I was glad to see that.
The lighthouse on the hill looked especially fabulous yesterday.
There is a lovely park surrounding the lighthouse, guarded by several of these wonderful lions. It's such a nice touch you don't see too often anymore.
So! I think my long period of hibernation might finally be over!
Thanks for stopping by. See you again soon, I hope!
