I spent a happy hour this lunchtime wandering around Forest Park.

It was a very cold day, but bright and clear and the sun was warming. I felt most refreshed by the stroll.

Astonishingly, both the fountains and the boat rental were operating normally. I would have expected them to close down in the cold weather, but evidently it's not quite cold enough. Two women were having a very happy time in a paddle boat. Singing at full volume and splashing through the otherwise deserted canals that run through the park.

The sun was already low. It gave the fountain water a lovely luminosity.
