The Sea is Out to Get You and Make You Its Lunch - (Ice on the Sea)

Okay, that's not really true. This is the frozen sea, in Odessa, Ukraine. And it's a bit unworldly. I've walked across a frozen lake before (okay, I had to be coaxed to walk across Lake Geneva in Wisconsin, even when the ice was a foot thick, but it is a very deep lake, so I'm excusing myself for whimpering). And while I've heard the unnerving squeaking, creaking and crackling of the ice, I've never heard anything like this. But then, this is the sea, not just a lake.

I was reading about this earlier today. I'm in the middle of Summer here, so my brain has trouble thinking **COLD**

I know. It's always a bit strange to be looking one season when you're in the middle of another one. I was trying to decide if this would be in any way inviting if we were experiencing record heat, but somehow I don't see this being inviting no matter what the season. Too much shrieking and creaking.
