days of continued snowfall, today was a lovely day.
The sun makes everything prettier :)
Although it started
slightly grey and misty in the early morning, once on the slopes the clouds
made way for the sun. For my friends it was a pain skiing with me today,
because I had to stop every few turns to take pictures of the beautiful landscape
and the fresh fallen snow. It is funny how just a little bit of sun can make a
photo so much more nice.
afternoon my buddy Eelco had arrived. He had decided he could use a little
break from his daily routine and drove in ten hours straight to Haute Nendaz,
to turn the naughty nine into the terrific ten :) Eelco not being a skier
suggested we do a daytrip in his 4x4. He loves driving in the mountains and
with scenery complete with fresh fallen pure white snow, I don't blame him.
Just an hour's drive from Haute Nendaz my sister's chalet is tucked away in a
pine tree covered cranny of the mountain. I knew she wouldn't be there, because
she's busy with some project at home. But perhaps the neighbours would be. It
had been quite a while since I last saw her Swiss neighbours, so I thought it
would be fun to pay them a surprise visit.
So, from our
snow covered spot, it was down to the snow free valley, a few kilometres down
the highway and up the next mountain. Fortunately, the neighbours were home. We
had a lovely cup of hand warming tea, accompanied by heart-warming
conversation. On our way back to Nendaz, we stopped at a mega super market to
buy the necessary groceries for several days and dinners. Buying in the valley
is much cheaper than up the mountain. And being on a budget vacation, I could do
with any penny saved :)
Would never be a pain for me to stop and take pictures...look at what beautiful recorded memories you have....they are the window to your world...and they are beautiful...never stop...stopping to take these great photos and sharing them.....:):)
Beside you and Elke could come to Victoria for a month (grin)...and I could drive you all over BC...and you could take all the photos you want:):):)
