Friday 14 February 2014 – Retail Therapy

1401retail

We were planning to ski today, but waking to 10+ cm of fresh snow, with more coming down, we decided to leave that plan in favour of our annual visit to MEC (Mountain Equipment Co-op), where a few worn out items, but not Sue’s Paclite trousers, were replaced.

Bridgehead, vouchers courtesy of Helen, provided coffee, and after lunch at home, Sue and I decided to break trail down by the river. We’d brought our snow shoes all the way from Timperley. With 15+ cm of fresh snow, now was the chance to use them.

It’s just a 5 km stroll, but good fun nevertheless and quite warm in the snowy weather. Sue romped ahead looking very proud of her technique.

But sometimes putting one foot in front of another can be tricky, even for a would be paralympic athlete!

So she went home and iced a cake.

Good to see you are still enjoying good conditions both for skiing and lying in. Sue looks quit comfy I must say!
