Eastern Trail - January 7th

Saturday January 7th, 2012. We should have 3' of snow by now with the temps in the teens. When I left the house that morning there was a scant trace of snow from the previous day and it was pushing 40 degrees. I wasn't in the mood to go far, do much - I knew I had other things pressing to meet deadlines.... Little League By-Laws and Agendas needed to be created, the "Outlet" needed to have items put on sale, the house needed cleaning. I decided I would just make a quick trip to see what I could see and then head back home.

Once I hit the Eastern Trail, I knew I was in trouble. The snow was melting fast, the air was warm and still, the tide was high and on it's way out and it was a most beautiful day. In my mind, I was formulating how the rest of my day-trip would pan out. I breathed in the fresh salt-marsh air and walked 1 1/2 miles down to the treeline and back. Surprisingly enough, the trail was very quiet - not many people had figured out how nice it was I suppose.

My sightings: An old fishing lure, Barrows and Common Goldeneye, a Common Loon, The DownEaster train service, Mallards, Black Ducks, the Eastern Railroad train, three chocolate labs, Canadian Geese, Black Backed and Herring Gulls, a few bikes and a couple of joggers.

Next stop, the Pine Point Co-Op......

So peaceful and quiet!
