Spring is coming....

These pictures were taken on Sunday, March 11. My favourite hiking companion and I hiked from the 'Red Gate' down to Cosen's Bay along with the Jo-dog. When we started there was a very fine drizzle that was more like walking through a mist. That stopped and it was just over cast but beautiful. The clouds clung low on the hills.

Rhiannon wanted to go swimming despite the temperatures only hovering around 7 degrees. Dean claims that it is his genes as he loved to swim in the icy cold Lynn Creek when he was a boy. So, Rhiannon started to strip down but she only got as far as taking her coat, boots and socks off. And the most she did was dash quickly through the water. It was a beautiful, soothing, peaceful day.

my kids always want to swim when we are at a beach too--no matter what the weather or season is.
