The clear, smooth ice has been inviting me for months
so I finally took advantage of its offer
and tried skating on the river after work!
The ice sounded different depending on how solid it was.
The hollow ice must have been the latest overflow.
I tried to stay away the parts that sounded like fall puddles--easily broken!
Dexter Dog doesn't like to be on any ice.
He kept coming back to check on me to make sure I hadn't gone through.
With the ice ridges and my very limited skating abilities
it wasn't pretty,
but it was sure nice to be out enjoying the warm spring sun.....
