Boxing Day Walk

After a very enjoyable but lazy Christmas Day we headed out for our annual Boxing Day walk. This year we took the easy option and decided to walk along the lanes as the ground was still very snowy. At the Ford we came across John’s brother and cousins who had been checking out the river. The River Rea had frozen completely upstream of the Ford and they had been testing the ice – it was possible to walk under the bridge – not something to be recommended and something I wouldn’t have attempted except for the tractor and the fact that it had already been tested! However I got quite a buzz from saying I had walked on water!
