A frosty walk

Today we headed out into the Norfolk countryside for a lovely walk through a very pretty hoar frost. Everything was covered in delicate spines of frost, and the ice in the puddles was over an inch thick (which doesn't take the weight of two people, incidentally).

We parked in Long Stratton and walked along some of the Tas Valley path up to Hapton and then back down to the car through Tharston (which we've visited before when we did the Veteran Tree Survey back in the summer of 2007).

We kept warm with a flask of beef and tomato soup and some cheese straws, and we're now tucked up at home with a mug of hot chocolate with whiskey in it. Just the thing to thaw out.
