It was one of those warm winter days where the temps hovered around freezing.
The sun was bright and the skies were clear and blue.
It was a good day to venture a walk on the lake.
Our lake days are in the summer where we spend time swimming in the designated areas which are not too far from the shore.
It's a treat in the winter when we can walk as far as we want from the shore on the frozen water.
Usually the snow builds up which makes it hard to walk, but this winter has brought so much ice that the surface was virtually clear of snow.
There were no snow machines to disturb our peace.
There was no wind whipping around our ears to freeze them.
Our little dog had the whole lake to herself and she took full advantage of it.
We're not much for outdoors in the winter anymore, but these kinds of days are gifts that have us enjoying it.
