A Busy Weekend

A skating race in our second village Yes we have two. This one is 3km. away.The race takes place on the frozen lake.
The snow is cleared to make a track on the lake of varying distances.

Men, women and children took part.
My fingers were sometimes too cold to press the shutter button!
I'm not sure who won, and yes it was very cold!
I thought this a nice picture, taken on my way home.

The water is not frozen here as it is a channel under the road from one lake to another.

There are 5 lakes in our area all inter connected to one another.

The largest of which is the one closest to us and is about 10 miles long.
