Ice Break Up

“Friendship that flows from the heart cannot be frozen by adversity, as the water that flows from the spring cannot congeal in winter.”

Little Bradford Lake - the ice is finally starting to break up. My kayaking days can't be far behind now...

One sunday you will leave yet again not being able to go, then one friday you will get up here...the lake thawed, and warm air to welcome your kayaking adventures! :) hope it warms up soon for all of us lol !

my best buddy and I were just talking today about kayaks. i don't think I will get one ($$$) but then who knows! If you show us some shots of you out enjoying a kayak I'll bet it will be harder for me to resist that next sale at Dick's or Gander Mt!

Ice melting???....good news for you....I have always wanted to kayak myself. When are we going????

Lovely picture, as always.

Pam said...

Simon has gotten alot of fish out of Bradford Lake. You've captured another beautiful shot. I can't wait til it's nice enough for you to kayak ~ I'm ready for some nice weather. Have a great week.

Judy said...

Yeah!!!! Spring is on it's way.

Betsy from Tennessee said...

Oh I'm sure you'll be glad to see Winter GONE and Spring COME for good. Me too!!!!! It seems like it has been a long winter, hasn't it????

Beautiful picture of the ice breaking up.

Kayaking?!...sounds like fun...and hard work! Hope your spring speeds up just a tad for you! I'm more the canoeing type (less work!).

The White Bench said...

WOW! Your lake is just fab!!And your photo amazing!
I mentioned you on my blog (hope it is OK), and hope you had my email too (my connection was sooo slooooooow during the w.e!)
Have a great day,

Tina said...

I can see why you yearn for those frozen waters to thaw..this has been a long and windy winter..and the idea of kayaking sounds inviting even to me..

Lovely pic and quote..

keep looking right around that bend..

Darla said...

It's about time don't you think?

Country Girl said...

I don't think I could live much further north than I do now (Maryland) because it's April. And the ice should be gone (in my mind).
Here's to kayaking days ahead for you!

WARNING: Don't walk on that ice! (You probably already know that ...)

Deborah Godin said...

Oh, can it really be...spring?!?!

Mildred - I am so ready to see a blue lake!

B & P - hope so!

Nature Lovin- One day I may not drive back downstate and decide to stay at the cabin forever - LOL!!!

Cedar - they're really not that expensive - wait for a sale at Dicks! (I had gotten mine 50% off there.) Kayaking is great!

Busy Bee - We'll go kayaking on my lake! Bring your camera!

Pam - you will have to let me know if you two come fishing on Bradford Lake this summer! Stop by my cabin! P.S. Will you be at that Gaylord Arts & Craft Bazar downtown (they're having one in June, July, Aug, & Sept.) I signed up for June & July.

Judy - I've been on pins & needles waiting! LOL!

Betsy - I'm w/ you. I think this was the longest winter on record! LOL!

Kathy - I agree!

Spooky - for some reason - I feel like I have to work harder at canoeing! LOL! But I love both!

Monica - thank you!

Tina - I am so ready for some early morning kayaking in search of my loons!

Darla - yes! I wish the man upstairs was listening a little closer......ha!

Country Girl - as much as I love Michigan, this winter drove me to thinking about living in N. Carolina - ha,ha!

Robert - Prudent advice! I had to rescue a neighbors dog that fell thru last week!

Deborah - I think I've resigned myself to the fact it's at least 2 weeks away. Sigh!

Michele said...

I love it when the lakes start to melt, it means that fly fishing season is right around the corner! I have some of the more shallow lakes thawed but some of my favorites are still quite frozen.

It is a beautiful shot.

For some reason I picture you pulling out that kayak, standing by the water's edge, waiting with smile on your face.
