A brighter day today! First thing I noticed this morning was the fresh snow on the mountains! The temperatures are much lower than average, with temps reaching about 10C for a high, and dropping to 0C at night. On Saturday the forecast is for 17C!...and then dropping to 2C at night before April Showers return.

Low tide was around 2:00 p.m., so after spending the morning organizing and taking items to the recycling depot, it was off to the 'rock beach'. It's such a fun place to walk, like a moonscape with tidal pools tucked into bowls scalloped out of large boulders.

Soaring eagles were visible ~ here's a young Bald Eagle (sub-adult)

A recognizable mature Bald Eagle flew overhead:
An interesting .pdf article can be found on recognizing the various ages of Bald Eagles here.
I really enjoyed breathing in all that fresh sea air!
Once home, I noticed the back garden feeder containing black sunflower seeds has attracted a variety of birds including a first photo for me of a Pine Siskin.
A great day of productivity and relaxation :)
