It's been a quiet day here and will be a quiet evening as we stay home and may not even stay up to see the new year in. We're having a cold and clear end of 2015 and that is the forecast for the next week. I had a lovely walk this morning. Not many people were in the park. Curiously I didn't meet up with any people with dogs. There are usually any number of them out around that time of the morning.
The lake has formed a thin layer of ice and there were so many Canada Geese standing around on the ice. I watched for a while and flock after flock took off presumably to feed in some farmer's field but about a dozen geese stayed put. I wondered how geese make up their minds whether to go or stay. Finally I had to move on because my feet were getting cold but as far as I could see those few didn't leave.
I wish each one of you a safe and happy New Year's Eve and a wonderful 2016.
