An uneventful spring, busy with work as usual but I did find time to spend with family and loved ones.  Here’s a collection of random pictures from my post-winter goings on.

I enjoyed an early spring visit from Mom and Ray, freshly returned from hot Mexico only to face the April chills of New England:

We sipped our coffee and watched the surfers one morning at Long Sands Beach in York, a warm kickoff of summer after weeks of rain:
