Kite Time..

Up to Poolburn at first light - surprised to find so much ice still there.  Reformed snow ice.  There was wind blowing making it interesting watching the ice surface evaporating as I skated.  Had a good skate then switched to the touring skates for a bit.
Enough wind to get the kite out and had a great time kiting across the main bay.  By the time I left after mid day there was water forming on the ice showing the hard 'crazy-pave' ice underneath. Be interesting to see if the ice survives the wet weather over the next few days.
Dropped in to Hoffmans Dam for a quick skate on the way home.   Great day.

Surface ice under pressure

Loving it.....

Hard to know what will happen to the ice over the next few days as temps and wind  are up and a cold front is due.
