Blue Rocks in Winter

17 03 2013

Winter is hanging on here in Nova Scotia. We get a warm-ish day, of + 8 degrees, followed by a day of snow and freezing conditions. This week we will have a high of 0 and a low of – 12.

I usually take my photos of Blue Rocks in the summer, but thought I’d show you how it looks just now.

The little fish houses sit amongst the blocks of ice.

This is where we launch our kayak.

I think we’re ready for a melt and some warmer weather. I’m looking forward to another hot, hot summer, like last year.One man launch 1

Can’t wait for kayaking season.
I don’t envy those poor fishers going out in this weather.

I agree, Sybil. This winter seems to have gone on long enough. But the lighter nights help a lot.
