A Very Cold River Humber

We are used to living on the South coast of England, where the rare snowfalls last a matter of hours. However up North it seems to last a lot longer. The recent snow (as seen in previous post) stayed around for a good ten days and it was on one of those days that I got a phone call from my neighbour Heidi to say that it looked like the river was frozen! I got my wellies on and wrapped up warm to go and investigate with her. She was right! Slowly floating down the river were large bits of ice, spreading over the distance of a football pitch.

Just as we were making our way back up the jetty we noticed this little seal on the beach. He was probably trying to escape the frozen water!

What a gorgeous view of snowy Spurn Point, as the sun was rising!
