It was the kind of day I dreamed about all winter. I have longed for the warmth of the sunshine to defrost my bones. Yesterday was just that day. Phriend and decided it was the perfect day to get out on the water. We hoisted the kayaks to the roof of the car and off we went. We arrived at the lake, the same one which was ice covered the last time we were there, but today it beckoned us to come paddle around. We toured the coast line and observed, a 100 or so, turtles in a deep state of mediation all while, they too, enjoyed a sunbathe. They barely noticed us. We returned home, tired but filled with hope summer can't be far away.
Today, I woke to find the tempertures had dropped and it was as cold and windy as any winter day. This made the sunburn I got yesterday seem more like pleasure than pain.
