Frosty day on the river.

Suddenly the skies are clear and very blue, and the ground thick with frost in the mornings.  The areas in the shade don't melt at all, so a lot of our Northern side of the hill is now covered in long sparkling crystals of ice over all the grass that get longer every freezing night.

But at mid-day on the river, it's beautiful. The sun as it touches the icy grass releases streams of mist that flow across the river from the shady to the sunny side, and the river at high tide was so still it was almost a mirror.







We did consider taking Theo with us, but in the end decided that it was a bit cold, and we would risk leaving him at home.  The risk paid off, he only tore up a tissue before we got back!
