Things Spring!


I am going to Think Spring...the Equinox has come and gone... in spite of the is possible... After a few days of dullness, at least it was sunny in the early a.m today...Sun, we need to see you more put me in such a brighter frame of mind.

It must be getting warmer...I left my gloves at home as I left for a trip off Island today... observed more gulls...and water at Northport.This may come more under the heading of how do we merely get through the dullness.What to do?  For me... color helps. Find a little bit... maybe more than a little... and enjoy it.

 It must be Spring...the Ferry Schedule has changed...loading continues at the Potato Dock though.

Six ferries scheduled each way daily and the first late Friday Boat - 7:45 pm from Northport - is this Friday, April 5! Do check the Spring schedule at  before you start your trip.Another rite of Spring is happening on the Island... maple trees have been tapped......the sap is running! Didn't realize the receptacles would be such a variety...Here's the good thing about all these cool days and freezing temperatures at night... more sap is flowing and there is continuing smoke coming from the sugar shacks. It is a time consuming process which calls for much monitoring. I think the result is worth it. It is hard to go back to store bought syrups after tasting this version.The ice is lessening in the Door and at Northport but a  stop at People's Park shows where it is going. The ice shoves  are collecting the day goes on... the colors change... a beautiful sight.

Do Remember:
