After what seems like the toughest winter in years, people are starting to reappear on sidewalks and in public parks.
At Louisa Lake, the bike path is clear of snow for the most part, and the waters are starting to reappear. This week, the recreation oasis attracted a steady flow of runners, dog walkers and bicyclists.
Each week, we offer a suggestion for a place to get away in-town. The turning weather conditions make Louisa Lake this week's choice.
The lake's two swans are starting to swoon over each other again. The benches are available for quiet contemplation. Take a moment and spend some time outdoors.
