Unexpected skate...

Having heard nothing much about the Lower Manorburn over the last week of big frosts I decided to check it on the way through Alexandra this afternoon.   As I approached Alex all the usual signs of ice where there (despite the day being warm) so I was not surprised to see some ice in the middle basin but was not expecting to see it thick enough for a skate.    Good hard ice! Had a skate in Rushcutters but not sure about the rest as it was getting creaky due to the warm day.
Good to be on smooth ice again after the week of snow ice.  Fab.
Hopefully it will hold till tomorrow with a frost.
Looking out of Rushcutters
Good ice!
Wish people cared as much as those who put the sign up....
