Houdek Creek was swollen with melted snow on Tuesday, March 13. Below, see the creek rushing into Lake Leelanau.
--but ducks found open water in which to paddle,

Sarah was happy to greet Fergus and MacDuff again. She hadn't seen them for ages.
Finally, I was happy to see that many old, tall birch trees survived the weight of the recent heavy snow.
