Hi everyone. The weekend is here. It's once again going to be on the chilly side here in New Hampshire.
This past week we had a mix of weather again. With snow and rain on Monday and then some more very cold temperatures, we now have lots of ice. Last year I was lucky and able to walk through most of January, but this year in order to walk I'd need ice skates. Smile.
I've had to find some other ways to get in my outside time, so I took a couple of drives.
The most exciting drive I took was on Wednesday. I was down at the coast for my allergy shots, and since I was in the general neighborhood, I decided to drive to Salisbury State Reservation right over the border into Massachusetts.
I had 2 reasons to drive here. First, this is a big area where snowy owls are seen, and I've been hoping to see one. Second of all, the tide was in, making the beaches very narrow, but this state park has other trails where I could walk. The coast didn't get any snow in our early in the week storm, so trails would work for walking.
Of course I got there and even though the thermometer in my car read 42 degrees F (5.5 degrees C) , the wind was right off the North Atlantic, and it was biting cold. My walk was short, but the trip was not wasted by any means.
