Coldest day of the year so far. Ice on the windscreen and the hockey turf and the boardwalk round the lake! The light was beautiful as the sun rose.
The day started with bathing alternately in the hot water stream at Spa Park and the cold water of the river. Great for our tired muscles. But today’s photo is at one of our regular haunts in the Tron. Lake Rotoroa is home to plenty of very well fed ducks! I spotted these as Nigel and I walked twice round the lake. Our boys have outgrown taking bread to ducks but there is no shortage of donors on a sunny Sunday afternoon. The funniest thing happened a couple of minutes after this shot when one duck snatched a whole piece of bread and broke away from the group waddling rapidly with two more ducks in hot pursuit quacking loudly!
