Festive Fun

The wintry freeze didn't show any sign of loosening its grip during the Christmas period. With the Mersey Valley looking like a winter wonderland, we made our traditional pilgrimage to the pub on our cross-country skis.

On Boxing Day I met up with other members of Manchester Canoe Club for the traditional festive ice breaker. The fun started with a spot of canoe sledging...

Following a series of overnight temperatures of around -10 celcius, the River Goyt was partially frozen over. However, that was not enough to put off over 30 paddlers from making the tour from Brabyn's Park to the club site.
