A Fine Saturday - March 20, 2010 - Spring








 -- and then one dawn the sky is clear and blue forever...  the sun is not just light but warmth.  The snow drops hang their white blossoms as if a little ashamed of their precious beauty.


As our hemisphere comes out of it's hibernation in the timelessness of it all, what is the number of this some billionth Spring that is today?   I wouldn't have wanted to miss this one.   Happy Spring, Judy, and all my friends out there.

Evening comes to the Mattituck Inlet







A low sun sets whelk shards aglow

OK. I NEED to someplace like this.
Couldn't you break your Whaler and request "at home" service or something?

Hi Mark, I love your "Sping" Pictures! In our yard at Fort Wayne, IN
there are no flowers as of yet. The daffodils have come up but no flowers. We
are always a little later since our house is so shaded. Take Care.

I love the 'boardwalk' photo. It speaks peace and quiet. What a lovely way to start spring!

I always see people fishing at that area west of the inlet. I can remember getting lost trying to find my way there.

Mark Kreider said...

The route there is certainly not direct by any means but well worth finding. Fishing does seem to be better on the east side off the inlet in my experience. It's often good off the very end of the west inlet jetty, the one with the beacon.
