Last Day of the Year - part 1

It was a beautiful, cold, frosty day here in Orkney. We spent a long time on the beach again. No seals (the tide was in) but later in the day there were 3 herons on the skerries where the seals normally lie.

It was an extremely cold day with a very heavy overnight frost. Even the seaweed was frosty!

There were a lot of geese around.

Frost on a drystane dyke.

We spent ages at the frozen loch, playing. The ice varied in thickness - and we invented a couple of games - a type of curling, and the bubble game.

The house viewed across the frozen loch.

Some scenes from the curling game.

And the bubble game.

We had fun!!!
