February half-term in the snow

Well, it didn’t happen this year, but there is something magical about being in Mandalay when there is snow on the ground all around. The surprising fact (to me anyway) is that the snow settles on the beach right down to the water’s edge – you would think the salt content would prevent it, but no.

There’s nothing better than going for a walk in the snow, or even making a snowman on the beach, as some young relations of mine did one half term, and then dashing back into Mandalay in the cosy warmth, to enjoy a hot chocolate and survey the wintery scene outside.  More winter photos in our gallery.
