Fun With Ice in Lockdown, Brome, Suffolk - 10th January 2021

There's a bike ride around the usual loop via Mellis, Yaxley and Eye, where the A140 is unusually quiet. Then, the boys do a bit of drone flying, and after that we're off on a walk up to the church and around the back via the Oaksmere on a cold and misty day. In between, the boys are having fun with frozen puddles on the side field, which contain lots of interesting sheets of ice.
