Photo of the Day: Bikers on West Bay

Yes, there are bikers out there, and skiers and skaters and snowmobilers and people walking their dogs and hiking to Power Island and fishing through little holes in the ice. So much ice.

It’s like this big new playground has opened up, and people are definitely taking advantage of it.

However, as Peninsula Fire Department reminds us on their Facebook page, just because the bay is frozen over doesn’t mean it’s safe. Have fun, and make good choices!
