A sunny day beginning with a very chill wind! Two more loads of leaves and cones raked up and the first lawn cutting, front and back.
This was followed by a drive to the beach to take these photos:
Then on to a wonderful rocky beach! It can be a slippery place, but the tide was out and it was perfect! Such an interesting place to walk, looking at patterns left in the rock, checking out the tidal pools, listening to some Canada Geese as they waded in the shallows, watching the eagle perched above...
On the way back, I checked on Harzel and I just find his whole self such a joy - just wending his way this way and that, with such wild abandon. He's Spring personified!
and check out those tassels!
As usual a Song Sparrow sang in the thicket. As I was peering at Harzel's tassels, I flushed out a couple of Quail which startled me to say the least. I hope Harzel didn't hear me! The Quail fluttered off onto a neighbouring fence.
After this full day, I was quite ready to sit out on the deck for the first time this year, and spend a little while admiring the cherry blossom buds, and also using my e-reader! Now that's what I call a perfect day!
