Sunday afternoon we went down to the brook to see the ice on the banks. It was really beautiful. We were breaking the ice and watching it float down stream and making ice dams. Then we found our pallet that we thought had been washed away by the rain. Russ had gotten it in the summer to make a bridge. Some fishermen must have lugged it away to make a platform to stand on while they fished. Then Erik found this cool piece of ice that looked like a giant crystal. And yes- Erik, Leif and I all slipped in!
