We got up late, and took our dog, Harry, for a walk. As normal, we did this by bike. Harry's a regular on the blog, having been featured going for a ride in the countryside and riding in his dog trailer. Now we're back on the same dog walking path as I covered earlier in the year.
However, it's a bit colder today. It just about crept up to freezing point before going down again later. It didn't snow today, but it should do so again tomorrow, and the temperature is predicted as being down to -9 C ( 15 F ) on Sunday - just in time for the children to cycle back to school on Monday.
This path is a bit slippery, but it's not a bike path so it can be so.
Next to a frozen ditch. Today Harry didn't go for a swim.
And over one of the bridges on our walk.
Now we're back on a bike path. You can see the difference it makes for it to have been gritted and swept regularly. The gentleman in the photo is walking his dogs using an electric buggy. One of the great things about having an extensive network of cycle paths is that they a resource accessible to all.
Another shot of the same cycle path as it turns into a bicycle road which goes directly to the city centre.
And here we're about to cross a bridge which was visible on another video from earlier in the year.
And along the cycle path by the side of the now frozen canal which provides the first part of my route to work.
We returned home to watch and listen to the wonderful broadcast of the New Year's Day concert from Vienna, including of course the Blue Danube waltz, as used by Mike Rubbo in his film of bikes in Amsterdam in the summer.
Anyway, it's time that I wished all my readers a Happy, Healthy and Prosperous new year.
