Following on from my previous post, it’s still cold with the outside temperature at minus 5.
It’s 8.40 am, and we have a thick fog completely obliterating the view across the marina.
However, whereas yesterday the sun came out turning it into a beautiful day, there seems to be little chance of that today, so it will be staying cold.
Hubby took the dog out at 7.15 and when he got back said the Avenue was clear and that the only frost was on the grass. Such a contrast in so short a time.
Rather than freeze ourselves silly just sitting around in a tin can on a pond of frozen water, we decided to go out for the day.
Nowhere in particular, just somewhere in a warm (lovely!) car where we could walk the dog a bit and get a spot of lunch.
Yesterday, I’d noticed the oyster shell type pattern on the grassy bank where the water level has been dropping but freezing in ripples as it did so.
On the way out today, I took these.
Not quite as pretty as in real life, but you can just make out the ripple effect.
The pictures below were taken exactly a year ago (see post here).
