Ice Skating in 1565

Pieter Bruegel the Elder, The Hunters in the Snow (detail), 1565. This looks very modern, doesn't it? I never really mastered ice skating with any grace but I thought it was fun anyway. I just got in from a walk with the dog and the cat and it's cold but nothing like yesterday. No wind, clear, and 32° and it was actually quite nice. Sleep tight and I'll see you tomorrow. via
