Walking on water

We went for a walk down by the harbor yesterday.  We ended up walking over the harbor:

Our route "by" the harbor yesterday

At some point, we realized we were actually on the sea.  It’s kind of hard to tell when the ice is covered in snow!  We figured, there were a bunch of others out there walking and skiing and snowmobiling, so surely it’s safe.

However, when you see spots like this, you get a little worried:

But then we came across a cleared track for ice skating (I assume), and it made me feel much better.

The docks were empty, of course, except for three boats.  I’m thinking this cannot be good for a boat…

There’s a lookout tower at the harbor that looks out over the sea and archipelago, but it’s only open in July.

Looking out over the sea (also my new blog header - did you notice the change?)

A hole cut out the ice by a private dock, likely for avantouinti

 

(I’ll be announcing the winner of the travel contest soon, along with our travel plans – I haven’t forgotten about you!!)
