The Thaw

The thaw has finally set in here. I'm currently in Wales visiting my parents, the reckon we've had nearly a month of bellow freezing temperatures. We were driving down to the beach for a walk 2 days ago and spotted this from the road.


This is the toll bridge at Penmaenpool, the sea is only a couple of miles away, as the river goes past the bridge it slows down and ice must have formed in the cold weather. Now the weather is warming up the ice is starting to melt, and in the warm air was steaming!

I've just got back from a fantastic weeks skiing in France. We stayed in a chalet that was 2 minutes away from the slopes and had some fantastic days skiing, with falling snow for the last 2 days.
