Yesterday's walk

The ice pond in Flowerdale is living up to it's name, still semi frozen a week after the thaw.
Out towards Skye which keeps disappearing under storm clouds.

Lots of clouds threatening but we stayed dry & avoided frostbite with copious layers. The wind chill was making it about -6c.

Snow on the hills & the sand is frozen hard. We stayed out until about 4pm & just made it home as the snow hit. Within minutes the ground was covered & this was followed by several more flurries throughout the evening.
Andy braved an evening run to the pier & round the arboretum. Margot chickened out & did an hour on the treadmill at the leisure centre instead.
