Ice Walk

As ice forms on the waters of our fair land, the Finns always have a strong urge to go and walk/skate/fish/ski on the ice. It is also a custom that people go too early when the ice is not yet strong enough and there are news of people falling into the water and needing to be saved. Sort of sad, but seems to be one of those news that you could pretty much copy-paste for the coming winters.

This winter started late, but with a bang and now it has been proper winter for a month or so. The ice formed quickly even on the sea, and now it is also safe to walk on if the place does not have a strong current.

In the spring this will fill up with nice boats.

Ice-skating is great fun when there is not too much snow on the ice.

Just a fun stroll on the ice. And a hot chocolate to warm the body after the cold wind.
