Take a walk in Blue Bell Woods listen to the sounds around you, of bird song and bees. Smell the flowers and the scent of Spring in the air. Every year is a new beginning and every day a blessing

Winters afternoon...................................

The sun came out and the sky was blue. So I asked Gerry if he wanted to take us for a ride.We went. Tristen has another cold so was not really into it but we went and he was fine with it. I think it was about 30 degrees and no wind. So we headed out to Empire. I wanted some pictures. The last time we went in Winter there was a lot more snow. In fact piles of it. Today there was hardly any. I took a few pictures along M72 on the way. I love the old barn, in summer it has held antiques (for a long time) and then an art center. Now I think it will be antiques again. Will wait till summer to find out.

There were more people on the beach than I expected. There were people out on the small lake in ice shanties.

From there we went on into Glen Haven. I just took a quick couple of pictures there. It was a bit colder there.

Poor Tristen was just not into it but made a valient effort. Gerry doesn't get out of the car. I could have walked forever but, well, time to go home. There is always another day. At least we got out.
