What longer, lighter days bring

Sorry to say, what with cold days, snowy days and short, dark days trips to our beautiful Presque Isle State Park have been all but non-existent over the last 2-3 months. However, this weekend, as our winter days are getting a bit less cold, less snowy and certainly longer and brighter, we made it out to Presque Isle and all around the entire peninsula. Here are some sights we found.

We have ice floes every year along our creeks and here at the bay,
but I don't think I've ever seen one that ended up perfectly vertical.

The ice fishing "tents" look better and better every year. See the "windows" and outside bench! Remember, they are usually heated inside , too. I've seen some with an extension cord extending along the ice for electricity or with a generator beside it.
