Spring and Ice Crystals

The days are getting longer. Two weeks ago the day was coming up at 8:20 and now it is light outside by 7:30! Alaska magazine has a picture of a kayaker on the cover for its February edition. The temperature has risen to the high 30's! (Now this applies to the 'hot' part of the day.) Anyday now the kids will be seen wearing their shorts. No question about it, spring is on our minds.

But bringing us back to reality, here are pictures taken 2 weeks ago. Those are ice crystals forming on the rocks and seaweed at Mill Bay beach. Air temperature was 19 degrees and water temperature was 37. I think I will keep the kayak inside for a little longer.
