When I woke up this morning I felt sure my cold would keep me indoors all day but, with the sun shining brightly through my window, I decided a small cold couldn’t kill me, grabbed my bike and ventured out. That turned out to be a stroke of genius, for here I am, a bright blue sky above, the sun on my face for the first time in ages, and I’m walking on the Ice. Admittedly, I’m really just crossing a small, man made bay and I know that it doesn’t sound all that impressive, but given the dreary weather we normally get in this city, it’s fantastic! When winter normally implies a few degrees above freezing and constant cloud cover, some proper winter feels good, and being able to walk on the ice, no matter how small the bay, makes it feel really special. It might not be all that fun to be outside in a place like this, but when it’s good, it’s fabulous.
