Snow Pictures - Weekend Fun
3 Attachment(s)
I sure had a wonderful weekend !! What did you all end up doing ????

Saturday it felt like spring was on its way. The sun was shining, the worst of the cold was gone (temp 10C/50F). I spent all afternoon on the beach. Went for a long walk, sat in the dunes reading my book, even had a pic-nic lunch ! Though still bundled up wearing a warm jacket, hat, scarf etc etc... it felt very nice when sitting out of the wind.

On Sunday I went to the southern part of the country called the Ardennes. It's a three hour train ride from here. There they had 30 cm/12inch of snow ! The sun was shining and I spent the afternoon cross-country skiing !!! It's a really beautiful area, hardly any people about, the only sound you hear is the swish-swish of the skis ! Even the birds kept quiet. I go to a very small village and visit my uncle at the same time. He is 90 years old but still in good health and living by himself !
I ended going by myself because none of my sisters were free. Then on my way back they're all calling me regretting they didn't come along ! cheesy

Here are a few pictures.
