Winter fun

                       At the Parc des Chenaux the other day, some boys from the nearby elementary school,
                       out playing hockey with their phys. ed. instructor, Eric.   Video & photos taken with
                       my new Olympus pocket camera.  A freezing-cold day, but the kids didn't seem to mind. 

                       Today it's -26 C (about -11 F) without the wind  chill factored in.   And a brilliant blue
                       sky overhead again.
                         The previous night there were about 16 skaters out skating here, the very
                         young to the very old.   In spring the ducks  come back to claim the pond.                                 

   Very slippery that morning.  Quite a few tumbles.
