Finally, A Few Nice Days!

Mother Nature saw fit to grant SE Cape Breton a reprieve from inclement weather just in time to celebrate Canada Day, and I took advantage.  We literally had no spring, but a few warm, sunny days isn't quite reward enough!  I need MORE!  However, if you follow my other blog, KaHolly , you already know I have kept busy at the sewing machine, patiently waiting for a break in the weather.  Any random nice day that DID come along was regretably spent mowing the lawn!

A day on the water resulted in these photos:

Lobster season is over and traps are stacked and ready for storage.

Moon Snail egg case

There were a total of 15 Great Blue Herons

Barrier Beach, low tide.

Score!
