Gotta love the snow!

snow 1We were not the only crazy ones to decide that a visit to the beach on a windy winter day was a good idea.   My step daughter, Aria, is visiting us for the first time, and we want to share the sights and sounds of Georgetown with her.   We were not all that surprised to find at least half a dozen cars in the parking lot at Reid State Park – it is a popular spot year round.    The setting is quite amazing.

snow 2The wind was blowing pretty hard, so we did not stick around too long.. just long enough to take some pics and to soak in some of the beauty…

 

and to play in the driftwood hut 🙂

Aria is already talking about another visit during the summer…

Time to get out the cross country skis

When we were first given a tour around the property here in Georgetown, my mind raced ahead to winter and saw wonderful opportunities for cross country skiing..   and now, here we are..  with beautiful snow all around  and some neighbors with the same idea.. how nice is that.. they actually broke a trail earlier in the day.. all we needed to do was follow!ski 1heading out to the trail…

ski 2this is a road in the summer, but we do not plow it in the winter..  a natural setting for ski trails…

ski 3nothing like a little downhill to get one excited..  great as long as we stay out of the ditches along the sides!

ski 4turn around spot..  great place to stop and take in the view no matter what time of year…

ski 5headed back towards the meadow…  and home in the distance…

ski 6our effort was rewarded with pretty light from the sunset – taken from our deck….  well, not exactly.. we could have skipped the exercise , made a cup of tea and sat down and watched the very same sunset.. but it would not have felt quite so good!
