Night skate!

Yesterday Dave (P) and I talked about the possibility of a mid week skate while the frost were still here so this afternoon we downed tools as soon as we could and headed to Coalpit in the hope that the snow ice would still be in.
Great to find much of the dam still skate able. We had a fab skate into the evening with the ice improving as the night cooled down.  The snow ice was hard - a bit bumpy - with a good area of frosted black ice.  Needed a bit of care is some places.
Great night to be out on a frozen pond ringed by trees but open to the starry sky.  A real pleasure!
Pleased to catch mid week ice...
