Ice Wonders of the World
But, we were there to see the the ice sculptures on this cold January day. When we crossed over the bridge onto the island, we first encountered a sign pointing to the left with the words "Ice Fantasy" and an arrow. Of course, the rest of the words were in Russian which we couldn't read. So we started walking toward the left - outside the fortress walls. There were many other people walking along the fortress wall so we were convinced that this was where we had to go.
After turning one corner, we saw that the line of people continued on around the next corner, far down the wall. We couldn't figure out where we were going to see these ice sculptures. But they must be good if they're Russian. We kept walking and walking and walking around this huge fortress. My feet were starting to get cold on the snowy walk. Where were we going?
I think we walked almost all the way around this fortress island in our search for the sculptures. But so many people were going the same place we were.

We decided that it was well worth it, even if we had such a long walk to find the sculptures. Russia does have talented ice sculptors.
At least, we had our exercise for the day.
