Warm glow

If we can’t bask in the warm glow of a sunny Spring day, then we’ll enjoy the warm glow colour and looks of a sodden cedar log!

Warm glow

The season continues to be damp and chilly, so when we head out, we do so kitted out for February or March rather than May. Cold and rain aside, everything looks fresh and green, and it is a delight to be out there.

Tangled fringe

To keep warm, we’re walking at a brisk pace, and stops to sit and admire the location are brief but enjoyable enough. With summer just a few short weeks away, we’re hopeful there’ll soon be days when we can sit on a (dry) log, basking in a proper warm glow.

Damp underfoot (underpaw?) – can’t stop for too long…

Until then, it’s appreciate the scents, sights and sounds of the dripping rainforest fringe, and don’t think too hard about why we have winter beers in the fridge…

A failed attempt at a tan and black. Almost a waste of a good stout…

Thanks for reading, and I hope you have a wonderful weekend!

Last weekend. Mid May? Or early March?

PS Of course, the day before posting, what happens? Why, there’s an improvement and blue skies reappeared:

Blue skies! The morning after a big storm

I am a would be outdoorsman - that is if I had more time, skills and knowledge. When I can, I love being outdoors, just camping, hiking, snowboarding, xc skiing, snowshoeing, paddling a canoe or trying something new. What I lack in ability, I make up for in enthusiasm and having a go. I'd never really survive for long out there in the wild, but I enjoy pretending I could if I had to...

    1. Thanks, Jane! Finally enjoying some spring sunshine here!
      I did enjoy game 1, so many goals and a great result! I’m looking forward to this evening, hoping it’ll be just as entertaining 😀


  1. I’m sure it must be disheartening to have this cold weather in mid-May, and I appreciate your noble effort at appreciating what you have. I’m set to go to a friend’s wedding in Seattle next week, looked up the weather they’re having, and was really disappointed at how cold and rainy it’s going to be. So I really appreciate your efforts with optimism, pc. Makes those sunny days even sunnier. Lovely cedar photo BTW.


    1. Thanks, Jet! Your trip to Seattle wasn’t too sunny, but the greenery makes up for the lack of sunshine?! We’re having another sun-free spell at the moment, and there doesn’t seem to be too many sunny days in the two week forecast. Building an ark…

    1. Thanks, Walt! Cedar is a warm wood, and I like the scent of wet cedar – just as well since there’s been a lot of wet cedar all around the past few months!


  2. Love the warm glow and blue skies photos!! Hope the blue skies continued into the weekend and those winter beers and weather disappear soon. Exciting to see Tottenham finish in the top four, the Oilers even the series and the Rangers finally win!! Missed out on the final Premier League games for a rainy walk in the woods celebrating that our hot temperatures are gone for a week. Wonderful to see the harbor again, enjoy the week and hockey games!


    1. Thank you! Blue skies have been as rare as seeing my teams go on winning runs this spring… Still very wet here, wouldn’t mind a few hot and humid days. A spring washout, so it’s fingers crossed summer delivers some consistent sunshine!
