Landlocked and Loving It!

The Beagle won't be on the water for a few weeks. It's at the back of the shed at the marina and when it comes out it needs a couple of repairs. There is a slight list to starboard that can be easily adjusted by the dealer, and the skeg needs repair. No big issues but they will take time. Everybody want their boats on the water with the arrival of summer, not spring. It sure doesn't seem like spring today, sunny and 25 degrees C (77 F).

In the meantime we are out and enjoying the spring flowers. The trilliums are abundant as well as many other wildflowers. In my opinion anything that blooms and isn't a dandelion qualifies as a wildflower.

Here is one of my favourites, the Eastern Trout Lily (Erythronium americanum). It has been out for the last couple of weeks and is commonly found in wooded areas. This photo was taken just off the Rose Point Trail.
