Spring at last. We have had a week of very pleasant weather (for Maine in April) highs around 60 and lows around freezing. It is never a straight line here so there will be cold in the near future. For now though the crocus on the lawn are in bloom and there are peepers in the evening spring is here for sure. The woodstove is not going all of the time and I only need to fill wood boxes a couple of times a week.
After working on the boat for a week in the yard it was great to launch and spend some time on the water under a cloudless blue sky. The eagles are back at their nests, and I am guessing that the eggs will hatch very soon if they have not already. Ospreys were fishing nearby as well. The loons return as soon as the ice is gone, and I am sure they have started nest construction on the edge of the water.
This is my first winter and spring not working for the guides association and the time difference is noticeable. The biggest benefit (aside from not working 60 hours a week) is that I have had time to get my equipment repaired and working exactly as it should. An afternoon with the chartplotter has it doing all sorts of things I did not even know were possible let alone have set up.
As reservations start coming in I always enjoy reconnecting with clients form season past and with a little more time that is even more fun and rewarding. I would love to hear from you. Come write
