And time for my first bike ride of the season at home. What better day to do that than Easter Sunday afternoon when we finally had some warmth and sun.
I felt resurrected after a 10-mile ride around my normal routes here in town. Signs of spring are still hard to see but there.
But the surprise of the ride was a couple of loons. They must be on their way north because I don't remember seeing any of them around here before. As I was rounding one of the curves on the trail I heard that distinctive call and looked over the lake.
There were two of them and I don't know enough about loon behavior to know if what I watched was part of mating - or a warning that I was there. In any case, the dance was interesting to observe.
Here are a few of the pictures....
