It Happened Overnight

A miracle seemed to happen to my lake overnight. In one fell sweep of a thunderstorm the lake that clung to winter on Friday has opened to a new season today.

It may look as though the shore is still dressed in the drab colors of fall but the sounds and the smells have changed.

The quiet chill of winter has been replaced by the "conk-la-ree" song of the red winged black bird and the quiet lap of the water on the shore. There's a hint of summer on the wind.                                                                                                                                                         
Where not long ago the coyotes walked across the frozen lake today three snapping turtles are enjoying a swim (look closely).

Gotta love Ontario - Gotta love Spring! Can't wait to get out and RIDE ONTARIO.


  1. Sounds terrific! The way you describe it I can practically hear and smell the lake. Yea, Spring!

  2. Thanks Nico'Thom for such a lovely comment - wish everyone could share the wonder, beauty and peace of the scene!
