spring has sprung?

I’ve started to see a few signs of spring – the last few evenings Luke and I have been taking walks up and down our street so he can see (chase?) the robins (as they are chasing earthworms).  then a client from work told me the other day that the smell of skunks is usually a sign of spring… he said something about how they come out of hibernation to mate, and end up getting hit by cars along the road… that was a new one for me.  but now I’ve got some visual proof – our crocuses are blossoming in the front yard. here’s a picture of Luke trying to smell them!

perhaps the sailing season is right around the corner?

    We’ve had a skunk under our shed for a couple of months, and every time we pull up the driveway, we get a foul greeting.

    2 weeks ago, 2 Sunfish sailed Jamaica Bay –

    This weekend, so far the count is at 3 possibly 4 – 2 confirmed Sunfish, 1 confirmed Laser & 1 more tentative Sunfish!

      must be nice! have you been out again on your Sunfish?

      I think most of the inland lakes around here still have some ice on them… it’s slowly melting though. it was mid-60’s here today, so it won’t be too long now.
