A February Walk on the Beach

ice sculptureSteven leaves for work at about 6:45 in the morning. With a fresh cup of coffee in hand, I usually start checking the computer and making a list of things I’d like to accomplish by 7:00. If I don’t make a list which usually includes the amount of time I intend to allocate to each task, I never feel as though I’ve accomplished anything at the end of the day. My first responsibility keep up with guest communications and the reservations. Being almost completely in charge of your own productivity is like sitting beside a jar of your favorite cookies.

Today, after I answered e-mails, did some work on Fiber College(we’re currently recruiting instructors) and plugged away on the new brochure layout, it was time to get some fresh air. Taz the rottweiler and I walked the beach to Moose Point State Park…about a 30 minute walk each way assuming you don’t dawdle too long looking for sand dollars and watching the flotillas of ducks on the Bay. It was really warm and beautiful today without even a whisper of a breeze. Before long I stashed my hat and gloves and just enjoyed the sunshine…one might say this wasn’t a cardiovascular work out!

The recent “thaw” has produced a new crop of free form ice sculptures like the one you see here. This one’s about 5 feet high and 3 feet wide. This is one of the best perks of managing a campground. Tonight I can work until every thing is accomplished but since it’s cold and dark outside, the tasks are more of a pleasure than an imposition.

  1. The pleasure of our world is that every season has its own beauty and its own rhythm…if I only remember to pay attention!
