Although we received some snow this past weekend, today is sunny and warmer with more of the same on the way. Today also marks the arrival of the first cruise ship of the season. I say bring on summer!
So, it does seem a bit odd to be editing images from this past winter. This photo was taken at the end of January – the coldest January on record for much of this area. What you see here is the railing and a walkway for the ship crew. So much thick ice had accumulated while the ship was at sea that this passageway has been nearly completed encased with ice! Fortunately the first cruse ship of the season won’t have to worry about conditions like this.
