After a wonderful night with friends today was a bit of a lazy day. After a fantastically long lie in today's main activity was a walk around St Albans.
We started off by wandering across Verulum Park and were somewhat amazed to find the late their frozen. I know it's been cold lately, but I hadn't realised just how cold! The ice looked about an inch thick in parts and quite a few ducks looked confused as they slid along it looking for the water.
The River Ver was still flowing on the other side of the footpath and was home to a vast number of ducks, including more coots than I think I've ever seen before.
We then headed down into St Michael's Village before heading back up Fishpool Street towards the Abbey.
After a reasonably heavy night last night it was wonderful to get out and get some fresh air. It was certainly cold out though and I was very grateful for my hand knitted woolly hat to keep my ears warm. We're not due back to work until Monday so we're now looking forward to a relaxing long weekend to start the year.
Happy new year to you all.
