I am playing along with Bug and Pop's lovely "Eye Spy" each Sunday. This week's theme is from the delightful Weezie's Woolies. Louise has asked us to show off an adventure that we have had.
Here are some photos from some snowy adventures in Canada a few years back.
The one above shows me tubing. If you are unfamiliar with this fast-paced thrill, it involves parking yourself in an inner tube and sliding down a hill. You can see here that despite using the tube from the tyre of a rather enormous piece of earth moving equipment, my bottom got stuck.
In the next photo, you see me trying out snow-shoeing. Approximately 60 seconds after this photograph was taken, I was upside down in a metre of snow.
Here I am perfecting my ice skating technique ... that is, staying upright. (Don't laugh ... Torvill and Dean probably started out with witches' hats too.)
In this snap I am dismounting the chair lift at the top of a ski run. Approximately 60 seconds after this photograph was taken, I was upside down in a metre of snow.
And finally here I am sliding gracefully along a cross country ski trail. On my bottom. Lucky for me, the snow wasn't a metre deep.
Thank you to Cindy for hosting Eye Spy and to Louise for the theme. To discover other adventures, head over here.
