After six days’ skiing I fancied a rest.
Skyping with Kate, Jacob, Jessica and Oscar provided an entertaining start to the day.
Later I went with Helen for a potter alongside the river (below), whilst Sue caught up with some work. Some of the trees had been seriously dented by woodpeckers, but only chickadees, squirrels and crows were in evidence today.
It was sunny-ish, with a uniform sort of light blue tinge to the day, and around minus 15C.
Warm enough for a quick excursion after lunch to the Rideau Canal, which is more or less next to the river, and is pictured above. It was good to see the British Paralympic team honing their skills on the world’s largest ice rink.
We have better pictures of the canal on a sunnier day, so this brief entry from our relaxing ‘beach holiday’ is just to remind readers that we are alive and enjoying the excellent Canadian weather and snow/beach conditions.
We hope you survived the winds at home, reports and warnings of which were no doubt exaggerated as usual.
