A busy day on the ice

I have skipped over yesterdays ( Friday ) events.  Mostly because I still have not recovered from the day. Don’t worry, you will be getting the full story 😯  Today was another busy day for us. I can’t remember the last time we went out to do errands two days in a row.  Sometimes you have to do what you have to do. We were both so happy to be heading home.

As we neared home we could not believe how many cars were parked along the side of the road. Then we noticed the number of skaters.  I  guess folks are feeling confident that the ice is thick enough to use. Where else can they skate during Covid?  See that tree in the middle of the photo. Our home is to the left of the trunk, along the edge of the ice and the bottom of the hills.

From home and by zooming in quite a bit I was able to capture a few of them.

I saw smoke further back to our left and able to zoom in on this! I assumed that they were ice fishing.

Meanwhile the kids and grandkids of a couple who live here in that park were also taking advantage of a skate day. We are still very cold, 14F / -10C, but much warmer than the past several arctic like days we have been enduring.

Shortly after we finished disinfecting our groceries and putting them away I caught movement on the ice. An ATV with a snow plow in front towing a toboggan with what looked like a fire pit. I  hope that they were not dumping the wood or whatever they were burning into their ice fishing hole.

Innovative way to walk your dog. He glided along and the dog ran fast.

Oh, yes that was me front left of the photo last post, wearing the white pantsuit.  I have no recollection of owning that outfit. I couldn’t have been more than nineteen.

  1. I thought you were wearing the Blue Slacks. The Facial Features, Hair Style and Glasses matched your sidebar picture.
    As Long as the Ice remains frozen with little direct sun it should remain safe.
    Some of the Canadian Ministers are saying our Borders could remain closed until the fall of 2022. Hope they’re wrong.
    Be Safe and Enjoy this season.

    It’s about time.

      The one wearing the blue slacks is now a dentist but already retired. We were al either dentists, nurses ( such as myself ) or teachers and the one lawyer standing behind me.

      I don’t like to hear that the border may be closed that long but if that is the way to control the virus then so be it.

    Busy day on the ice, nice to see people getting out and enjoying themselves!

      It really is neat to see. I was amazed at how many parked along the highway and just scrambled down to the ice and skated. Everyone seems seemed joyful.

    Oh, I do miss the ice skating days of my youth. Those photos just brought back memories. I did buy myself a pair of skates, and as soon as it is safe, I will go back to the local rink here in Arizona. It’s the best place to be when temps are 110 outside, I tell ya!

      I never was able to get the hang of skating even as a child. I am happy to be a spectator. Good for you to be so active.

    Well then, Now we know. You were the one all in white. Whatever you day was yesterday, glad you are here an have shown us crazy people on ice. (Well, if I lived in Canada, I might not think they were crazy. Maybe I’d have some knowledge of ice and how to tell when it is thick enough.) Thanks. Stay warm.
