Signs of Spring

This morning we went running in the dunes, as usual, but at least now it isn’t so cold.  No hat or gloves needed. Yay!

Here’s someone who’s toasty warm all the time.

She walked right up to me as I came running up the path.  She stood there quietly while I scratched her head.  I could feel the heat rising off her fleece.  I wonder when they will be sheared?  These are the same sheep I caught on camera escaping over the fence several weeks ago.

I was really distracted by the animals today.  I also stopped to pet the (not so) wild horses.  The ones next to the road in this photo were happy to let me scratch them behind the ears and pat their necks.  They were really friendly.

As you can see, it was really coastal weather today with the low fog.

You can tell Spring is in the air by all the bikers that are suddenly everywhere.  Just when you are enjoying having the dunes to yourself, these guys show up again to race through the dunes and make you nervous at every corner.  I wonder how many times they crash on these dune paths every year.

It’s another busy Sunday chez UDS.  I’ve just taken muffins out of the oven, I’m preparing another blog post, and then I’ll start sewing together my cardigan.  Gotta call Mom and make dinner.  Never a dull moment!
