Another nice one!

Saturday my friend, Genevieve, and I got out and walked almost four miles on the Tony Knowles Coastal Trail and Chester Creek Trail. It was a beautiful afternoon with highs in the mid 40s. Many people were out walking, jogging, and riding those fat tire bikes along the route.
 We stopped for a minute to enjoy the beauty of Westchester Lagoon.
There were no ice hockey players out on the ice today as it has gotten too thin.
 It was so nice to enjoy some light and other subtle signs of spring.
This small creek still had some snow around it.
We had to walk through two tunnels and both of them were filled with snow and ice. The ducks seem to know the ice won't stay around much longer.
They didn't let it get in their way of an afternoon swim. As you can tell from this photo, the ice has really begun to melt in this small marshy area.
I know the pics aren't up to the usual professional detail and quality. Greg won't trust me out with the nice camera if he's not there to supervise! He had other afternoon plans and couldn't get out with me. Hopefully, he can get out next weekend and capture a few nice shots with his camera.
