#242 Winter Respite - For a Minute
We caught a short hiatus from winter last week with milder temps and full on sun. I was even inspired to start reading articles about sailboats. Did you know that your run-of-the-mill stainless steel kitchen pot scrubbies tucked up into thru hulls will keep bugs out of the boat during winter storage?
But we longtime Mainers know better than to think we've given the slip to that merry prankster Old Man Winter. Come Friday, to no surprise of us veterans, Portland received a good 6" of snow, with a repeat performance today. Tom said the crocuses were 2" high at the Harraseekett Inn in Freeport. Needless to say, they're gone.
Today I choose to remember the other side of winter with this somewhat romantic, but fairly accurate depiction of that brief respite. The water, believe it or not, can turn the most amazing blue. You'd swear you were somewhere tropical.
