Ice Ice Baby

It was rather chilly this morning!  It got down to -5 last night, this morning the water had turned to ice in the marina and on the canal.

We took the dogs for a walk at noon, it was still -3 !


We had a quick chat with fellow Aussie Toni!


We went for a walk along the towpath, but headed away from Stone into the sticks.


Everything was frozen ... don't know where the spiders hide!


The dogs are well disguised ...


Bombo having a quick shake to warm up!


That's better.


Elaine all wrapped out to keep out the cold.  We bought some really good cold weather gear before we left Oz ... it was well worth it, so far the cold hasn't penetrated our Kathmandu coats.
 
Frosty leaves ...


It was a lovely walk - no one about, just us and the dogs.
 


Sammy having a break!  (If he gets a twig or a piece of grass on his back legs he sits down and won't budge !)


Poor Sammy had 2 coats on and he still shivered ...


Back past the Aston Church ...


When we got back to the boat Sam was straight in front of the fire to thaw out, unfortunately fat- arsed Jaffa had other ideas and sat on him!


It's good getting out and about in the icy conditions.  It's good practice for Klosters next week, they are down to -15 daytime temps!
