Ice, Ice Baby

I was at a real loss yesterday as to how to occupy my afternoon. I had another day off from training in order to rest up for the race, but I didn't feel like resting so I opted for something in the middle. I hiked down to the beach on Hugh and Denise's stairs (144 actual wooden steps by my count). The sun was shining and the ice was magnificent. I can't really think of a way to explain the phenomenon I encountered a little out further on the ice. I was watching the actual formation of the ice as far as I can tell. This video is a little boring but it may make it a little easier to understand what I'm talking about. The ice sheet was expanding towards land and breaking itself off against the solid bluff of ice. At any rate, it was pretty flipping cool.
