Winter wonderland

Part of the plan with this extended tour of Britain was to get some mountain biking and sea kayaking done. It turns out that the weather gods had other ideas and plans to paddle with some Scottish sea kayaking contacts failed to materialize. The bikes too remain frozen on the roof of the car.

Not ones to be thwarted in plans for having fun we changed plans and had some fun in the snow instead.

Snowman building, sledging and cross-country skiing all made suitable replacements.

Hopes are that the weather tomorrow will be warm enough to allow a safe trip down to Yorkshire to visit the other side of the family.

Looks idyllic John. We had a decent fall of snow here in Norfolk, and near mother's in Herts. Looking forward to some more in June, in the Snowy Mountains ;-)

Hi John,

Swanage is warm and barmy (well 3C) and gearing up for the New Year Celebrations. Thanks for the blog throughout the year and hope it will continue for many years to come. Happy New Year to you, Liz and the girls and behave yourselves tonight.
