January Ice

For a brief period in January, the ice on Megunticook Lake was skateable. Like moths drawn to a flame, ice lovers converged on the sunlit expanse, in ice boats, on skates and even on wheels. John and I and the dogs skated from one end to the other revelllng in the sunshine, the blue sky and the long glides.
