A couple of nights in the teens hardens the lake

If the temperature would stay below 25F for a week with little or no snow, the lake would be ideal for very wild iceboating. It is gorgeous at the moment - like glass. This is color photography.

I couldn't tell what this bird is. It is not a canada goose. I wondered if it is trapped in the ice. I hope not but it seemed to be struggling somehow.

The gulls are still with us.

Grace Church, Ridgway, PA

Grace Church is everything I've been told. It is beautiful in a different way from any other parish I've visited. Last week I visited St Mary's. This week there is a statue of St Mary. Like the others I've visited, Grace is a friendly parish. They were celebrating a birthday so I got lunch. It feels good to be told I'm welcome every time I want to make the 2:15 drive. 

Afterward I drove to the Cathedral of St Paul in Erie, PA for Lessons and Carols.  A 300 mile, almost 12 hour day and well worth it!
