Life On and Off an Acreage

In-sights into moving from an Acreage back to Town, plus a few things I find of interest.

Two things that horses are scared about:

1. Things that move
2. Things that don't move

April 25, 2014

Coming out of Hibernation etc.

I took a quick walk around Rotary Park yesterday just to see what was happening. The sun actually came out for the short time that i was there.

I caught this Muskrat swimming along the open space between the ice and shore. Yes, there is still ice! Lots of it!

I was hoping that he would come to shore, but he was just out for a cruise.
The Ospreys returned over the last two days, probably during a snow storm, and are staking out their old nesting site. The town built a platform on top of a telephone pole, and it's been used yearly for the last 8 years or so.
The old man prefers a top of a dead tree where he can keep an eye on things.
It's a start, and a sign that maybe better weather is coming. Rain and snow again this morning!
