Snow Day

Today we rugged up, loaded up and took off up the nearest mountain in a quest for some snow. It wasn't looking promising ... we prepared the wee girl for the worst ... but she was having none of it ... she insisted that we had gone on a quest for snowballs and snowmen and that what's would be found. I love an optimist and luckily at the top of Mount Barrow ... that's exactly what we did find. Winter wonderland with enough of the white stuff to tick the boxes.Beanies and warm coats on ... but the most beautiful of clear, sunny winter's days.Snow and jewel-like ice......and a chance to get amongst it.
...even if the snow was a little too powdery or a little too icy to really get a snowman happening. There's always next time ... and for a girl that originally hails from WA ... no, the novelty has still not worn off that this is only 40 minutes from my front door!!
