A wonderful day: -3°C, bright sunshine, good company, lots of fish. The setting made me wish I had a pipe and some good aromatic tobacco; it seemed so appropriate. My son cleaned up all the fish and we brought home our share of about 20. There were just too many, so we discretely tossed a bunch on our neighbor’s pile; he seemed intent on catching and keeping as many as possible.

A veritable feast of fish

A village of temporary huts comes to life on the ice…complete with electric poles and streets

Always a church in sight

Fun for the whole family
