Weather - Frozen canal

Continuing this week's theme, since it wasn't snowing today I went for a walk and happened to cross a footbridge over the canal, which for I think the first time in several years was partially frozen. Not particularly thick ice, but it wasn't something I expected.

Unfortunately I'd forgotten to take a camera with me so this is from my iPhone - if I'd had a camera with a decent optical zoom I would have included pictures of a coot that was wandering around on the ice looking very confused...

Very cool. I've only seen canals in pictures.
Most of the older British cities are linked by a couple of canal networks, used for heavy goods before the railway era. These days the main use is pleasure, plus quite a few people live in boats - it's a little cheaper than renting a flat, though not as cheap as you might think since there are licence fees, mooring fees, etc.
