Remember our favorite lighthouse that sits on the edge of "our" island?
Seeing this stunning photo of it in winter's icy glory makes summer seem so far away.
Certainly a contrast to what we are used to seeing.
Friends of ours live across from the Craighill lighthouse and I borrowed these amazing winter photos from their facebook. It's such a beautiful eerie sight.
There's our Island over in the horizon. Feels like forever since we've been there!!!!!
Paul and I talk about the boat every day.. every single day we are a day closer.
It wont be long before I will paddle over there on my board.
Meanwhile, we'll just look at this chilly view and dream...
Saturday's snow storm came on fast. I knew that a few inches were expected... but honestly, after a season of being "punked" by weather predictions, I don't believe a word the weather people say.
Which was why I went ahead and met some friends for lunch early in the afternoon before it snowed.
In less then two hours there was already a few inches of snow on the ground. The roads were horrible. HORRIBLE!!! A drive that would have normally taken me less then 10 minutes, took 3 hours! There were cars stuck everywhere! Driving around them was like driving through an obstacle course in which I drove with the white knuckled grip the whole time. Scary!
This was the scene just down the road from my house.
(another photo that I borrowed from another facebook friend. )
Isnt that insane!!!
I was so happy to be home and even more happy to hang out on the bike with Paul.
This is his favorite thing to do..
take out the atv and
cruise terrorize the neighborhood when it is snowing.
Its so much fun. I just hold on tight and let him lead the way.
His favorite stop is a tiny old cemetery that is tucked away in the middle of our neighborhood.
It dates back to the 1800's and most of the names on the tombstones match names on the street signs around here. Makes me want to learn more about the history of this neighborhood.
We were like a couple of kids standing outside of the grave yard, snuggling to keep warm and sharing the beer that I had stuffed in my coat pocket. : )
Isn't it strangely beautiful?
And there's this guy...
Is it possible to have to much fun?
We stayed out on the bike for hours..
(until we had icicles dangling from our ears!)
Have I mentioned that I would follow him anywhere! : )
On Sunday, after we dug out, Sally and I took advantage of the beautiful day and
went out to ride our sleds on the hill nearby.
I haven't been sleigh riding in years!
Paul is normally in charge of the sledding adventures, but he and Michelle both had to work.
Thankfully, the stream at the bottom of the hill was barricaded by that black fencing.
Soooo much fun!!
I'm talkin the upside-down on my back with snow down my collar and my boot hanging off kind of fun!
What a great weekend!
Winter in Baltimore..
not so bad after all!!!
Have a wonderful Thursday lovely friends
