Just after 9 am, I set up my easel just east of the dam at the Outlet of Charleston Lake. There were some Canada geese in the shallows on the far shore and they hung around for a while. They were waiting for spring too. The winter birds were busy in the spruce and pine trees at my back.
The ice had twisted the boat docks into barely recognizable lengths of decking and supports. The pieces were all over the place. The docks would require some major reconstruction before tourist season.
The temperature started off at minus 6 Celsius and although the temperature did rise, so did the wind and it got really cold by the time I finished!
