Deer Lake froze over on the night of December 5-6, 2011.
It was not long before skaters had one very large sheet of ice to play (and feast) upon.
Virgin Ice is still thin.
Near shore you can easily see the bottom, and get a sense of the thickness by the cracks seen near top of photo (actually about four inches all across the lake on this day).
Out in the middle skaters dodge around a mosaic of shallow drifts and cracks,
some of which had flooded to form short ridges.

The ice-day party stops for a snack on the ice.
Note the fish-house out near Christmas Point.
Skating over the bay to the Point, we find some ice-anglers getting set up.
A Beautiful day on the Ice of Deer Lake. The lake ice sings its boomy song!
Wish you were here for a Deer Lake Ice-Day!
