Slim (ice) pickings

Has not been good weather for ice lately but decided to have a look around today anyway after the first good frost for a while.  The wind and rain has melted all the previous ice.  Poolburn had new ice but too thin to skate. Managed to find a couple of ponds near the lake and had a bit of a skate.  Ice was good on one pond and marginal on the other two.  Wondering if it might be the last for this year?
Made the most of the ice that was there and fun to get the skates on again.
Headed over to Pisa for a snow kite to complete the day - great wind and snow!

Checked the Lower Manorburn this evening - new ice in the middle basin.  A frost or two away from a skate....
