The Last Time

Another fickle Winter season draws to a close here in coastal Maine. Sure there will still be quality snow inland (and we have at least 2 more months of nuisance storms here as well), but it’s the time of year when the question begs to be asked: is this the last good snow ride of the season? Will this time be the last time? The long range magic 8 ball of a forecast points to “yes”.

Fortunately I had one perfect weekend of seasonable weather before a massive meltdown threatened (and succeeded) to ruin all of my fun. Carpe diem my winter loving friends, trust as little as possible in the next day. One never knows when the last time will pass unrecognized.

We are always wanting
Things we cannot find
You know that we are always wasting time” – This Time, INXS

A sudden squall blows in off Casco Bay. Not a bad way to start a weekend.
I love this section of forest at sunset
Fresh snow on tall pines with a firm, meandering trail beneath: bliss
Always take the shortcut across the pond. Make a left at the ice shack
On second thought, don’t always take the shortcut across the pond
Out of the blue and into the black
Threading through the trees with the ocean in the distance
This beach is haunted (really!)
Sunrise on a cold morning. The early bird gets the firm singletrack
Lobster traps pulled out for repair
Last call for terra firma. Last call for winter?
