First Day of Spring at Ak-O-Mak
“Hey Dianne. Took these photos this morning…”
“Winter isn't giving up yet. It's been cold so the lake started making ice again and there is snow in our forecast for this coming week. The sun is super strong so it will win in the end. All seems well at camp. There are robins searching for worms on the bare sections of the field and the animals are coming out of hibernation.” (J&J, Rocky Reef)
Thanks to our neighbours at Rocky Reef, we have this glimpse of camp at the dawning of spring.
Like one stirring from a deep sleep, Ak-O-Mak has yawned and “rolled over” for the last weeks of her wintery slumber!
As the sun climbs ever higher and the days grow longer, so our excitement builds as we look forward to our first trip back to camp this year. After the grey of an urban winter, it is always a treat for us to witness Ak-O-Mak’s wilderness spring to life!…to watch the forests don their leafy garb and loamy scent, to hear the music of the frogs and the birds as they court.
The transient gift of spring is an experience to be cherished…just like youth and a summer at Camp Ak-O-Mak.
