One Brave Motorist

One Brave Motorist

It certainly is a Winterwonderland here in Wales today, but apart from the stunning beauty nature's winter dress presents to us, it also leaves our roads and paths treacherously dangerous. I couldn't resist to venture out for a brief walk this afternoon, taking only small steps all the way because the roads were covered in sheer ice, on which even my winter boots couldn't stop me from slipping. The most joy was definitely being had by the numerous youngsters I saw, sledging down various hills. One brave motorist passed me on his quad bike, the only motor vehicle in sight. The only village shop open today must have had a field day as the queues at all three tills were rather busy while people shopped for their essentials, yes me too, I thought it might be wise to get a few things in, just in case the online-grocer can't deliver tomorrow - after today's cancellation.

  1. Good for you! You got out and braved the elements and were able to take joy in the sledding and be a part of nature. Just be very careful walking on that ice! I know it must be very beautiful outside.
