Once reasonably awake, the first thing I did this morning was to check Blogger and see if they had corrected their 'uploading photos' problem. And they had. My world was back on a slightly evener keel again. It sure doesn't take much to knock it out off balance and waking up to 42F temps with a wind chill factor of 33F earlier today was certainly disappointing for this time of year. In fact, Pheebs had to stand on her two hind legs and aggressively shove me out the door today. So, with lined winter pants, and a warm T-shirt underneath a long sleeve flannel shirt, I donned my winter jacket, pulled my safari hat down over my ears, and headed for the Jeep. With the heater cranked up Pheebs and I weren't long in getting Libby's interior up to a nice comfortable tropical temperature inside. I was soon wishing I hadn't put all those warm winter clothes on:((

A blog reader in the comment section a couple days ago requested a photo of Bayfield's Beach, so on this cold rainy morning that was our destination. High water levels, wind, and waves have caused serious erosion problems along the small beach area even washing away part of the parking lot. I was heartened to see a notice in Facebook this morning by the Municipality of Bluewater, saying that Bayfield's Beach would be temporarily closed on June 1rst for maintenance. It will be interesting to see what they do there. I'm thinking maybe some big boulders might be involved.
| THE SOUTH END OF OUR PARK'S PINE TREE TRAIL IS STILL REASONABLY INTACT.....FOR NOW|
| BAYFIELD'S BEACH AREA IS SMALL AND STRETCHES FROM THE TREES ON THE LEFT TO THE NEXT CLUMP OF TREES ON THE RIGHT|
| YOU CAN SEE HOW THE PARKING LOT HAS BEEN ERODED BACK|
| SAW CUTS IN THE PAVEMENT CAN ALREADY BE SEEN AHEAD OF THE BEACH REBUILD|
| WITH ALL THOSE ROCKS AND STONES OUT THERE IN THE WATER IT'S NOT VERY NICE FOR SWIMMING|
Needless to say, because of the cold and wet outside, Pheebs and I had ourselves an inside day. However, by late afternoon skies began to clear and we did end the day in a glorious blaze of sunshine with temps up to 50F. Warmer days ahead:))

GROANER'S CORNER:(( Finding one of her students making faces at others on the playground, Ms. Smith stopped to gently reprove the child. Smiling sweetly, the Sunday school teacher said, "Johnny, when I was a child, I was told if that I made ugly faces, it would freeze and I would stay like that." Johnny looked up and replied, "Well, Ms Smith, you can't say you weren't warned."
I'm glad they got Blogger fixed too.ReplyDelete
