Heading out of winter

Finally on the East Coast we are getting to the point where it is not just not unbearably miserably cold, but its actually kind of pleasant and nice to be outside. A couple of weekend ago, Florian pulled out our book of hikes in the Baltimore area and found one that was supposed to have some cool ruins. 

The Patapsco River is one of those huge rivers with trails and recreation areas all along it. 

Finally, a warm enough day for the dogs to get in the water, get their paws a bit wet 

and get a drinkie

There was much rejoicing. 

It was a flat trail but still beautiful, 

with the water right next to the trail 

And eventually, a number of cool ruins. 

I know it was kind of disrespectful but it's hard to be too upset about a graffito of a large, good-natured banana. 

I have to admit, I'll be happy when there's a bit more green to enjoy on our outings. 

In the meantime, you have to appreciate the wacky things nature sometimes does.

That was fun, guys! Now its time to rest. 


  1. A beautiful setting even without the greenness to come. I like the time of year before the crowds of hikers.

  2. Finally. I remember one time mom told us when she lived in NJ they got the blizzard in April
    Glad it's getting better there

  3. It's finally warming up here too. And it's great to be outside again, seems like your pups enjoyed it too!

  4. Looks like things are edging towards Spring down there. We had a coolish 53 degrees with a chilly breeze and mostly sunny skies. It's been Springtime up here for a few weeks now. The daffodils have come and gone, the cherry blossoms are still here and the tulips are sprouting. Sunny days ahead Kirsten :)
