Ice Out

The last little bits of ice are on the move, from east to west. They are sounding off a tinkling to signify their demise. It's really cool. All to the east, as far as we can see, is shimmering water.

The west has been clear for a few days. Out in front of Heston's, the ice has floated back and forth, shrinking smaller and smaller. All that's left are these few rafts. The loons and ducks have been swimming along, sometimes venturing near to the edge. On Friday, some guests saw a group of ten loons at ice edge, a rare gathering for this time of year, I think.

And so, by day's end, it should all be gone. What a nice Mother's Day present.

Happy Mother's Day to all!
