Garnet Hill

The girls had their midwinter school break last week and M took the week off from work. He’s been obsessed with cross country skiing this year so he decided to book us a stay at Garnet Hill Lodge in the

Snow Day

It snowed Saturday afternoon and had melted by Sunday morning. Having finally learned that snow never sticks around here, I went out while it was snowing. Quite a few families sledding. There wasn’t even enough snow to completely cover the

In the Woods

These are from two walks we took over the holidays. The first one was in Gatineau park and the second in the backyard (sort of, off the property but accessible from the backyard). I had my brand new GoPro with

Photo Monday – Snow Day

I woke up to falling snow on Saturday morning. I thought I’d get up early and go take pictures but things happened and I was only able to leave the apartment around 9:30. I headed straight to Prospect Park with

These are the “not water and ice” pictures from my Christmas day walk. The images I didn’t know I would find. Winter can seem like such a dead season. The stream goes quiet. No flowers, no leaves. Only the evergreens

Photo Monday – Icy

Each time I visit my parents, I bring my camera. I’ll go to different spots depending on my mood. This time, it was cold. -20 degrees Celsius cold. (That’s roughly -5 Fahrenheit.) I wasn’t going to go far and I

Photo Monday – Snowstorm

We had a bit of a snowstorm last Thursday. I love going out in snowstorms around here. As long as I’m dressed properly, they’re kinda nice. Almost no one is out and everything is hushed, a rare occurrence in the
