Can imagine that. And possible more seldom as the global climate change is slowly affecting the Europe. For example here in the north winters get shorter and a bit warmer. At least I guess so.

There's a little river running through Hamburg, the Alster. And right in the center of Hamburg it's held back and forms a lake. I remember years ago that lake (called Binnenalster) was totally frozen and there were people selling mulled wine in the middle of the lake and you could do ice-skating almost to the front door of the stores on Jungfernstieg. That was nice! But it only happens once in probably ten years, if it's that often...

I think you had some ice and beautiful weather in January 2006 in hamburg. but itīs true itīs very rare there.

As yet I never thought of the in-ice-option. But there you go... this is one of the great advantages you have up north. Here we got some ice on the streets but seldom on the water. :lol:

I tried my best with these pics. Well before spring comes the winter and a possibility for taking cool in ice pics. :-)

The weather really looks as nasty in Kotka as in Hamburg yesterday.
But nevertheless a really good shot under that circumstances.
But why worry? Only 146 days left till spring comes around :-o

Thanks you like my pic of her. Yeah I know the new ones but they havenīt called Finland yet. This is the biggest in Finnish waters so far. :-)

Hi Pekka,
Nice picture but she's not the biggest for the moment. Faust and Idelio of thesame company re bigger with their 8000 cars capacity.
Take a look at our News section atthe Ship Hunters site:

Frederik & Gerda :-D
