|Ice Fishing Huts, Prince Edward Island|
Susanna asked the question (which I thought was a reasonable question):
"how can you tell if a lake is frozen enough to walk on?"
I thought it worth throwing out there to see if any of my maritime friends
know the answer (I sure don't)!
Last winter when Michael and I were out hiking he walked out to the
middle of a frozen lake to talk to a fellow who was ice fishing.
He tried his best to persuade me to walk out with him, even to take
just a few steps on the ice but I refused.
I have this morbid fear of falling through the ice and getting
trapped under the ice. No way was I going to take the chance.
So, who knows??
And here's another question - what do those guys do all day inside
those little huts while they're waiting for a fish to bite??
