Nicer spring days

A view of this afternoon's run; puffy clouds and waves on the lake



With the exception of some gusty winds, today was pretty darned nice. 60 degrees with a mix of sun and puffy clouds. This is more like it! The wind made for difficult running this afternoon, but I still had a decent run.

Signs of spring are really starting to emerge along my trails. Buds are starting to pop out on some trees, and hints of green are everywhere. The forest floor is starting to come to life. New bird sightings for me included the osprey, a pair of blue-winged teal, and the belted kingfisher.

Yours truly, enjoying a nice spring day



Believe it or not, they are predicting 80 degrees for us in Thursday. Wow! That would be our warmest weather in 7 months! Can I officially put away the winter running gear? :)

Until next time,

Jean
