Changing of the seasons…

Do you remember that late summer scene of the lake out the back of our house…

Look what a few weeks of cold weather and some snowfall has done to it..

The lake has completely frozen over. It looks stunning. The Canadian’s seem an enterprising bunch and they certainly love the outdoors, evidenced by the following…

This is one of maybe 5 different ice rinks that the locals have created for themselves on the lake. You have to admire their determination. It is a significant job to shift that much snow to expose the ice and then they spend an age trying to smooth the surface. Then it snows again and they have to clear the rink again!

It’s fascinating to watch them at work and then to see them enjoy the fruits of their labours.
