Winter had subsided, but this day it was not aware of. The temperature was around 5°C (41° F) and cold wind blew strongly. But even that did not deter Samantha from its intention to explore a half-drained pond. She stopped the car on the causeway and began to muddy the pond. The mud was great and Sam enjoyed it properly, even though the mud was so sticky that she lost one boot. Sam put a lot of work that she again had both wellies. Then she washed wellies in ice-cold water and went home very satisfied.
