Something's in the air. . .

It's been nice the last couple of days. Really nice. Yesterday we had lunch at the new Italian place overlooking the water by the Purdy Bridge, where we sat and watched the seagulls play and the sunshine reflect off the still water. For the afternoon we went to Penrose Point State Park and walked the beach, collecting shells and excavating crabs, while a bald eagle soared overhead amidst scattered cotton clouds. In the yard I've noticed flowers starting to break out of the ground. There have been a greater number of robins and swallows in the yard the last week or so. It's been sweatshirt weather, rather than winter coat weather.

All seems to be saying winter is slowly passing, and spring might be just around the corner. I don't know about you, but I'm ready.
