Ice skating on Lake Mälaren 27 Januari 2007.

Lake Mälaren 2007
Lake Mälaren is Sweden's third largest lake.

We started at Kungsör, skated eastwards
and ended up in Stallarholmen, 85 km.

It has been a warm winter and when the ice finally
froze up it was immediately covered by snow.

This day the friction of the snow was generously compensated by a strong tailwind.

Here we seem to have a relative to the aracua bird seen in the Disney cartoon
"Clown of the Jungle" (sv: Kalle Ankas fotografiska expedition).

We had skated in shelter from the islands for a while but now we came out in the wind again.
