During the current period of cold weather I'm not using the bike much but I strolled around some parks on Glasgow's south side where I lived as a child.
|Queen's Park - I climbed to the flagpole….
|….to get a view of the grimy old city. As children we sledged here.
|It looks like someone broke the ice on the small pond for there little fellows
|The big pond was also frozen. This is unusual at this time of year. An earliest recollection of mine is my younger brother falling through the ice here and being rushed home in our sister's pram.
|Nearby is Maxwell Park, my favourite as a child.
|It may seem strange but I know this stone well. We used to sail boats in the pond and clamber over this shiny stone.
|The low winter sun reflected on the ice
My preferred mode of transport these days (us old yins get a free pass)
