It was so cold and icy down by the canal in Etruria this morning. We had to go out to do some food shopping for the weekend so we stopped on the way back near the Etruria Industrial Museum so that Paul could test a new lens he had bought for his camera.
When I went out into the garden this morning to feed the birds even the grass was slippy! Most of the main roads have been gritted but the roads around us were still very icy. The car park at the museum was like an ice rink but we managed to walk to the steps and up to the top of them. The gulls were swirling around and around calling out in their mournful tone and who can blame them?
Others were huddled together to keep warm. The top of the steps was as far as we dared walk so just a few quick snaps were taken of the canal with the museum in the distance and of the icy water in the canal.
Brr - I was so glad to get home again.
This is the best place to be! Just let your owners go out in the bad weather to buy your food and cater to your every whim.
Wake me up when the snow and ice have gone!
