A Early 'Spring' Walk Amidst Nature Offers Renewal

The shoreline at South Jersey's Amico Island Park in Delran.

And where does this path lead? To a beguiling blue sky.

The first sprouts of green -- a welcoming harbinger of spring.

Turn a corner and enjoy a surprising view of the Philadelphia skyline.

A lone holly tree stands protected and ready for the new season.
We've been been blessed with an exceptionally mild winter and what appears to be an early spring this year.
And that's the perfect recipe for a walk that welcomes the season of renewal and rebirth.
