Frozen Beach

First, a belated Happy Birthday to Avery who turned 2 on January 10, 2016.
Aimee and Mike took him to Galaxyland. I have no idea what that is but I gather he enjoyed it. On the run all the time. Photo by Aimee
Asleep on the Nemo he got for his birthday. He actually wore himself out! Photo by Aimee
Maya, also got a stuffed toy, Dorey, but she just doesn't seem to need sleep. Photo by Aimee.
Meanwhile, back at Long Point, cold and VERY WINDY days built up the ice mountains on the edge of the lake and then two days of rain shrunk them. When there was finally a nice day I walked the beach and took some pictures.

One area, out on the frozen part of the lake developed sand/ice boulders????
I always find the buildup of these ice ridges fascinating and,
this year, the freeze and thaw cycles have created some beautiful patterns in the ice.

It is currently bucketing with rain and the forecast is for above freezing temperatures for days so I don't know if any of this ice buildup will last.
The bare sand has its own patterns though and
the ceramic highland dancers, that Heather planted in the sand years ago, really don't care one way or another.
