By the Lake

Lakeshore Walking Path, Penticton

High Pressure Blue Sky

Strolling by the old ships...

....And the patterns in the sand and ice

Resting Gulls
Lots of ice on the Lake today. Usually the Ring-Bill gulls float on the water together. Today it was their choice to sit on the ice facing the warm sun. Tomorrow we will have fog and minus four degrees Celsius. That means black ice on the roads. We have already seen quite a few dramatic road crashes because of invisible ice in this part of the world. People ending upside down in roadside rivers for instance. We hope our coach driver does well for us as we negotiate the Coastal mountains in the morning...
Wish us luck!

I was expecting that it was colder based on the ice on the water. Excellent pictures.

Greetings,

Marvellous photography, as always! I do hope you enjoy a perfectly safe coach trip tomorrow and have a wonderful outing.

We had a covering of snow yesterday but it is busily melting now.

I love days like this - sunny, crisp and cold. Maybe I ought to move there.... We had black ice too, one of the major roads in our region closed for much of a day because of so many accidents.
