Long weekend hike

I try to start every day with a hike threw the property with the dogs, but weekend hikes are especially fun because the kids can join us. It's slower going and there is sometimes a bit of complaining, but in general, everyone is in high spirits. Signs of spring are finally in the air. And our small brook was flooded. The water level was way over the bridge, and we had to turn back. We decided to drive to the ocean (5 min away) and finish our hike on the shore. It was spectacular. The ice floes were just stunning. I had never been to the shore in the winter before. I'll be going again. The ocean wind was chilly though and soon, we had to head home for some hot chocolate by the fire
