Just a week or so ago, ducks were still paddling around in open areas on the bay.
These two are surrounded by slushy little ice floes, but are still finding enough open water to navigate and feed.
The ducks are all gone now, though. The bay has officially frozen over and ice fishing has begun. Baloo and I saw a man pulling his equipment out onto the ice in a big sled while we were out walking yesterday morning.
It's odd to see the vast, flat stretch of white snow, instead of the usual blues, greens and grays of the bay. I just love that every season and every day bring something new to experience.
