Ray Mill Island – 11th February 2012
It’s been some months since Freddie and Jen last came around.
We drove down to the river and parked in the car-park just along the road from Boulter’s Lock.
The channel which flows through the lock was partially frozen, following the recent snow.
Judging by the lack of disturbance in the snow around the lock itself, it had been some time since the last boat passed through.
We made our way over the bridge and the girls were pleased to see that there was still plenty of snow left on the grass. It was also surprisingly quiet.
Freddie devised a new way to improvise when there is no sledge around – fortunately Leah loved it!
We managed to find a few ducks to feed before heading back home to warm up by the fire.
Hopefully the weather will be a little warmer when we plan to meet up in Bournemouth next month.
