In honor of the dirty kasha covering everything outside now, I'll post some photos that I took last week, when everything was pretty.
I had actually started out, planning to go for a long walk and take photos of the beautiful frozen reservoir in the sunshine. We didn't get that far, though, because we found this little ice slide. It was the perfect size! Almost as good as the one that was always there in Kovrov winters. There's a great sledding and sliding hill near us, but it's really too big for Asya, and Raia gets intimidated by all the big kids there. So, this was much better. It was just a dip in the path, where someone had poured water and polished it up. We never did get down to the sea, but I got a bunch of photos of a different kind of beauty.
