April 2nd, and I'm bundled in layers.


Pants. Over pants.  Winter coat.  Sweat shirt.  Ear muffs.  Scarf and gloves.
I should not be having to bundle like this for a walk in April.   But I had to, today for my walk at Hartlen Point.


But y'know what ?  It was worth it.
The dogs and I walked to the end of the path, down the hill and along the sheltered bay.


The winds along the cliffs made it really cold.  Along the bay it was much nicer.
So I hung out there for a while, throwing the ball, collecting shells,


and looking for interesting rocks.


The dogs love our walks at Hartlen.


Can you tell ?

    1. Brave ? Naaaaaa. Just feeling house-bound and must get out for walkies, even when it's bitchin' cold.

      There are some beautiful rocks at Hartlen.

  2. It's not even that cold here yet Sybil, and we're heading into winter! You have gathered together a beautiful collection of shells and yes, I can tell how much the dogs enjoyed their walk, by the look in the last photo. Joanne. :)

    1. I am so sick of this cold weather Joanne. We had three mild winters and then this winter was awful and spring seems to have forgotten us.

  3. I am looking forward to not being bundled too! Surely, since the ocean is a good 100 miles from here, I am not as bundled as you but I am still waiting for those days where we can just feel the sun on our faces without the chill of the wind. Love the photos of the shells and the doggy-smile.

    1. Our forecast is more hopeful for next week, but gosh, spring is soooo late. Hope you have warmer weather soon too.

    1. It's much better but not what I'd call balmy. It's well above zero or 32 F.
