Warmer but cloudy with rain and/or snow predicted. No snowmobiles have used the trail behind the house yet and the deep snow is difficult for Kelley so we drove to the park - it looked like they had not got as much snow as we had. We started from the picnic area parking and walked down Otter Cove Rd. to where the open part of the loop road ends. Because of the conditions ( snowy areas alternating with bare road and large drifts) there had not been much snowmobile use on this first part and it was a bit of a slog. A little ways past the bridge at Otter Cove there had been more trail use and the packed snow made for much easier walking.

On the end of the stone wall along the walk were some shells left by the gulls
and this knot was in the roadway
