The ice went out of our Seagull Bay today, April 30. We had alot of wind and rain today and the lake looking south through the narrows is looking sloppy. For a moment, the sun peeked through the clouds with the beautiful rainbow above. The open water is looking very inviting.

I thought I would tease you all with some open water. These shots were taken on the walk to the mailbox today. It is GREAT to see open water. It is 60 degrees here in the woods today.
This gives you a whole different perspective than the webcam shot. I suspect many of you will get excited seeing these that you are still in the photo contest!

An early morning visitor at Seagull this morning. I was enjoying my morning cup of java while overlooking the bay this morning. Two wolves came through the narrows and walked over to the store, stepped on the dock and walked onto the shore. I walk over there everyday to the mailbox and think I will drive today. We are sharing these woods with many others!
The ducks are returning to the open water in the narrows and by the dock. There is open water surrounding the perimeter of the bay and things are starting to melt again. You can see by the photo what the ice looks like in the middle of the bay.
There were actually 4 wolves that were on the south side of the narrows this morning. Two of them went north to our store and the other 2 went east. Fox walking on the ice is an everyday occurrence here.

The melt is coming! We had 60 degrees and sunshine on Seagull today. We had significant snowmelt and snowbanks are vanishing. The pond behind the store is looking dark and the water is moving through the culvert. This should help to get the thaw going and spring on the way! Stay tuned! Deb
