What’s funny is that everyone down here is shivering this morning. Last night’s front has dropped the temperature ALL the way down to 41F!
It all depends on what you are used to. Right now, 41 feels positively balmy to me.
Looks cold but gorgeous, Laurie!
Thanks, Jill! Actually, for Maine in February, the day was quite mild. In the 40s, I think.
Aww it’s ice-fishing time again! Wonderful scenes Laurie! xxx
Nice to see signs of people enjoying the snow cover. We’ve had to dodge hail and sleet here the last few days. Every time I think it would be a good idea to get outside, it starts again.
Phew! Hope the hail and sleet soon come to an end.
Looks cold and beautiful. I love the little icefishing village.
I remember my grandfather and uncles going ice fishing in Michigan when I was a child! Always seemed a bit crazy to me!!
Not something I would want to do, either, but I do like looking at the colorful shacks.
Great pictures, thank you for sharing.
I wonder how thick the ice is compared to other years? It has been so mild here, I wouldn’t dare go out, but I’m always nervous around ice! 😉
So far, we have had enough cold days to make the ice safe for walking and fishing. But today it is bucketing rain, and I expect soon the shacks will be moved off the ice.
Ice fishing!!! Wow. It looks like winter wonderland. I love that there’s a beach closed sign. Ha!
I was very intrigued by the title and wanted to see this “village” and was surprised to see the fishing huts on the ice. As a southern Californian I have only seen these in movies and in your lovely photos. Very fun!❤
One of the greatest things about blogs and the Internet is the ability to meet other people and see other landscapes without ever leaving your home.
As Aussies, we have only heard about fishing huts on the ice, never seen them close up…such an example of how humans adapt to their environment. The blue skies and snow make a wonderful photo.
Many thanks! Yes, humans do adapt to their environment. I suppose that’s one of the good things about us.
I too enjoyed the beach closed sign. Nice pictures of the ice fishing huts.
Beautiful winter scenes and blue skies (we’re back to gray skies)!🙂
Many thanks! Gray day here, too, with rain/sleet bucketing down.
What beautiful scenes, Laurie. I am glad that I am viewing them from the warmth my home!!
On the day I took those pictures, the day was actually mild and sunny. For a Maine day in February. 😉
Lovely photos. It is many years since I saw a properly frozen lake – London’s Serpentine in the ’70s was possibly the last.
Long time ago! So far, we have ice every winter. To not have it would be quite a change. Holy cats!
What? The beach is closed?
Right? No way!
I bet the on again off again winter temperatures have annoyed those guys to no end. 🙂
Actually, it’s been cold enough so that there haven’t been any troubles for them. But now that we’re getting into March.
Such sparkling photos, Laurie and I love that village!
Like Tialys I was taken by the one with the beach closed sign! There is an intrepid group of ladies locally who go swimming in the sea regularly all year round but I think they might draw the line at breaking the ice to get in. They call themselves the bluetits!
That name is too funny! Double entendre? Isn’t a bluetit also a bird in England, Wales, and Scotland?
It is indeed a small bird that is common in gardens.
