Winter playground

A couple iceboats on the river late this afternoon evicted the gulls from their usual loafing spots on the ice. Click on the pic to see how handsome he is - even for a sleepy gull.

;-)

I'm waiting for more sun and the big boats this weekend...

Some nice pics from yesterday can be found at
Red Bank Green. I stole a couple to include here...


I especially liked this silly dog chasing a skater...

and this wide view of the scene taken from mid-river.

Must be so much fun to be in such an open area skating with the city in the background. Very nice.

I agree--I love the photo of the dog.
