A great early season skate....

After yesterday's early season ice we decided to head up to Poolburn again today as a good frost was expected in Central.  Coldest temps so far this year.
We headed straight to yesterdays spot and were treated to a great early season skate.  On the way out we decided to check have a look at the main bay and were amazed that we could skate out to the island.    Ice was a it creaky as the day started to warm.  Just fabulous skating for early June. Care was needed.  Hoping that frost will keep the ice in.
Had a skate at another hard to get to place on the way home.  Great day!

Ice Report:  Poolburn - some ice over (most of) the bay out to the main island. Thin - needs much care and a few more frosts.  Not recommended for skating yet.
Idaburn - Bit more thin ice in main bay but not yet fully covered.
