Days 213 and 214 — Our obsession with frozen seas

Each morning, Bianca and I go for a walk. Lately it has been a nice crisp 10 to 20 F. so I am bundled up but Bianca refuses to wear anything but her dog collar and does not seem to mind in the least. Our current favorite destination is the frozen sea down by our local fish stand.

It has been “cool” lately but also very dry and sunny. This is just before sun up at around 8:00 a.m.

Proof we are standing on the 70% of the earth’s surface that is covered by water.

That line running across the bottom third of this photo is where the ice ends and the slushy but not yet frozen part begins. I poked my finger through right at the edge and the frozen part was at least as long as my finger.

Looking back at the fish stand. Okay, enough of that.

It was a gorgeous morning and we had to get a shot of sunrise.


But it is not all fun and games for Bianca and me.

There is some serious yoga going on. This is downward dog with a neck twist. Do NOT attempt this move unless you too can lick your hindquarters.

That’s me getting schooled by a Danish-Swedish Farm Dog.

This is a look that says, “He couldn’t tell ö, ä and å apart if his life depended on it.”

And “You’re hopeless. Yankee, go home!”

Actually, truth be told, it is mostly fun and games.

Th-th-th-th-th-th-that’s all, folks!
