After a morning on the sofa, we eventually dragged ourselves out of the house and went for a wander in Rockcliffe this afternoon, primarily to take photos of my new hat (its a very important task). Jasper was less than impressed with the photoshoot and more interested in our cups of tea and the fresh animal tracks in the snow. Photoshoot over we ended up walking quite a stretch on the river itself, where in places the snow was up past Jasper's chilly bits. The sky was blue, the ice was thick and the snow was sparkly, all was well with the world. Then Jasper discovered an evil eye painted on the rocks.
Actually, I think its quite a friendly eye but I'm not sure that's what they were going for. If you look closely the eye has been labelled 'Bob' (just to the right, underneath). I think if they were going for evil they should have picked something a bit more menacing, but then maybe I haven't met the Bob they were referring to.
