Communing with the Elements
Yesterday was very cold, but not too cold to go out. Sybil and I decided to go for a walk and get a hit of fresh air.
In the event we got more than a hit. We got gallons of the stuff!
We took Wendy and Trey to Hartlen Point.
As soon as we got there the snow started coming down. It was beautiful against the bull rushes
Wendy and Trey were more than happy to be out on a walk. The red ball was thrown umpteen dozen times. Trey coped well with wearing his new pink coat. He’s man enough to carry it off……..
There was already plenty of snow on the ground. Gradually more and more settled.
Then the wind came up. But there was no stopping us. What’s a little breeze and a drop of snow anyway?
The ocean was choppy (understatement). The rocks were covered in snow and ice right up to the water.
OK, yes, we were now willing to admit it was getting cold, and extremely windy……
The light was grey and white, and we could hear fog horns warning sea vessels. Lovely atmospheric sound.
We were dressed for the occasion, but the wind played havoc with Sybil’s fur trim
These rocks were covered in a layer of ice. Just imagine the temperature of the water. We tried not to.
This beautiful birch trunk was getting some extra frosting.
And then the wind really got going. We were having an adventure by now, but I knew Sybil would get me home safe!
By now Trey was ready to get back into the warm. He stopped running for the ball which is a sure sign.
On the way home in the car, Sybil pulled over, promising me a ‘Very Canadian scene’.
And so it was. An impromptu hockey game on a small frozen lake.
It was fast and exciting. These chaps really could skate.
They had all the kit, including two deck chairs.
Time to get hot coffee and lunch at Timmy’s . Yet another exciting adventure with Sybil!
