Trip to the Manorburn Dam

After some wickedly cold temperatures in Alexandra, I took Sarah, Jane and Kara through to Alexandra to go skating on the Manorburn dam. This was the first time I’d skated on it since I was about 12! Stu McLennan has kindly lent me the former Matt Mobile while he’s away in Australia which we used to make our way to the dam. Thanks very much Stu 😀

Ice coverage was pretty decent, up to about 15cm in some parts.

Some people were even skating right up to the edge of the dam. But I didn’t have the guts to try that!
