A Moment in Time - The Baltic Ocean / Jaguar XJ6

Being miles from shore, driving an old-school Jag across the frozen sea ice of the Baltic

“The purpose of life is to live it, to taste experience to the utmost, to reach out eagerly and without fear for newer and richer experience.” ― Eleanor Roosevelt

Our Jaguar XJ6 purred along the smooth surface, with only the smallest of vibrations from the unusual surface beneath its wheels making themselves felt. Several miles behind us, mainland Europe had receded to the horizon; ahead we could just about make out the island of Vormsi in the distance. To our left, a ferry plied its trade through a passage in the ice, and beneath our wheels, 25cm of frozen ice was all that separated us and out 2 tonnes of Jag from the icy waters of the Baltic.

Surreal doesn’t begin to describe the sensation…
