This has been a very dry and mild winter. About 4 weeks ago we had our first snowfall and today we had our second. It was never this dry during summer. We woke up today to a couple inches of nice fluffy powder, no wind and comfortable temperatures. Mariette took her camera and took some shots.
Our favorite view higher above the sea. Hmm. With snow on the ice it won’t be slippery. That gives me an idea for later.
Did my good deed by shoveling the neighbor’s walk. His doing his good deed tomorrow by loaning us a car to visit Mariette’s aunt who is celebrating her 80th birthday.
In the afternoon the sky turned blue, the sun was bright and time to walk some more on the snow-covered sea ice. No chance of slipping now.
Taking the direct route to the next beach.
Maybe 100 meters offshore looking back at Mariette and the dog. This all occurred before I decided to do a little reading up on walking on ice. Ignorance is bliss. Even though the water is only about waist deep this far from shore, I think I will get some more information before I go out again. I basically violated every single rule there is about going out in the ice. And lived to tell about it. The gods smiled again today.
