The river does not hurry during the winter

Posted by
Jypyä Pop (Turku, Finland) on 8 February 2019 in Cityscape & Urban and Portfolio.

On the ice of the Aura River, there has been a ferry bridge on the surface of ice for many winters. From there, the people have gone along the ice in the direction of the upper course. It's a very popular way to spend your free time. There have been no ice walkers this year.

B. Thomas from Arlington, Texas, United States

Interesting and cold scene. I can't imagine winter swimming competitions.

@B. Thomas: Thank you. It's not a terrible experience. There is no time in the water at a time. Bathing in cold water helps, for example, to break the joints.

Hiro from Kyoto, Japan

Why no walkers this year ?

@Hiro: The ice is not strong enough. Walkers were on the other side of that riverboat earlier.
