A long winter. The equinox was a week ago, but only yesterday could I leave the house at Woodhaven and not feel winter's chill.
The picture up top was taken in January -- a view from my bathroom of the snow-covered driveway that leads to the carport. For departing vehicles, a three-point turn is required.
Still on Woodhaven -- today marks the annual spring re-opening of the Woodhaven Nature Conservancy. The official opening time is 6 a.m., but as of 9:30 a.m. the gate remained locked.
Normally Lori would be unlocking and opening this gate, as she was for years the WNC on-site caretaker. But as a number of Central Okanagan parks have had their caretakers laid off by the Regional District and replaced with a private company that drives around with a big ring of keys, well, just sayin'.
