Inside, looking out, icicles mesmerize. Ice castles: Blue, gray and white.
When the wind is still, which is not very often, the harbor sometimes freezes over in areas. It doesn’t last long, and the fishing boats sail year-round, but when it does happen, it is a delight to study the ice patterns. Here are some images from yesterday.
We found this lovely ice sculpture the same day we discovered Nature’s Snow Globes. Water was shooting out of a drainage pipe and the constant misty spray, landing on the grasses below, created ice encasings around single blades of grass. Beautiful!
What to do on an amazing Autumn evening in the North Cape: Have a picnic dinner by the sea, followed by a rock-skipping competition (or throwing pepples if you are so inclined). Highly recommended!
My children and I wonder if these ice castles belong to fairy ice princesses, arctic mountain trolls, or gnomes with frosty grey beards….
