The street outside of the house was still full of snow and ice. There was snow and ice on the pavement as well. It was very slippery. We needed to take care walking to the car. Fortunately the main roads were rid of them. They were clear. Ice is melted by sun and by many wheels. The countryside was very beautiful. We saw the North Wessex Downs still covered with pure white snow. Several red kites flew in the sky above. (In Cornwall we have buzzards instead.) At last we came to Henley - at lunch time, for a birthday celebration. My son and his friend both reached forty years of age in the past week. It was a good party. Many friends were there from the boys' school days.
