20160105 A New Year!

We celebrated the New Year by wishing Captain Keith a Happy 79th Birthday.  The Planet cooperated by giving us glimpses of our Star:

The next day a big beaver came out on the shore ice eating freshly harvested water lily roots.  It popped up and down several time, checking me out occasionally.  Yum Yum.

On the third day of the New Year the sun was again visible for a bit … so we could see some snow textures and sparkles…

And, yesterday it got really cold (-23ºC), so the Inlet (finally) froze over, with lots of frost flowers (which you’ll probably have to enlarge (by clicking) so see properly).
