Another cold bright day

The sun continued to shine today and so I went to Hazlehead Park. Obviously there was a coffee and a slice of cake to be had. A very substantial piece of cake as well, similar to Christmas Cake but with nuts and without the icing. After the cake I felt I had had a full lunch.

The pavements around the park were quite slippery in places where they had been damp. This was especially true near the pond in front of the cafe. The pond itself was frozen in several places.

The fountain to the right of photograph was erected in 1901 by Alexander Cooper, a fruiterer of Aberdeen, it has three lion plaques below the inscription. I am afraid the fountain has outlived any fame Mr. Cooper may have had in his lifetime, though to have paid for such a monument he must have been successful in his day.
