No Ice!!!

I was here on 12th April it was a beautiful day and the ocean was clear with no ice in sight. Since then the ice has come to shore and it was really a large problem for many fisherman and their boats. I was checking out fellow blogger sites last night and came across Eric Bartlett's picture under "Pack Ice" of this very same cove 12 days later and quite full of ice.....so much for the global warming? http://ericbartlett-digitalpics.blogspot.com/

Happy Duck

This guy looks to me like he might be smiling. According to how long they have happily inhabited the "duck pond" at Bowering Park in St. John's I would suspect life is pretty good there.

Grey Foggy Day

The windsock at the end of runway 13 at Gander International Airport. Today it was light drizzle all day and right at the freezing point, hence the ice on the trees.

Butterfly @ Bowering park

A travelling butterfly show was brought in from the "Insectarium" in Deer Lake to the greenhouse at Bowering Park. I travelled to St. John's last weekend for my son to compete in a qualifier for the Atlantic Championship in Gymnastics and heard about the display on the news. I also saw that Karen at http://bitstop-nfld.blogspot.com/ stopped by there too and I thought I would go and have a look. It was nice to see and fun to shoot a few pictures in the warm on such a cold and damp day.
