I know my favourite things list is ever changing, but I am very happy to have finally fallen in love with snowshoeing. I thought I might like it, but I haven’t had an opportunity to try it in Victoria where snowy days are few and far between. On Christmas Eve morning, while my sis and R were out skiing, GJ and I borrowed their snowshoes and headed out to explore the snowy golf course next to where they live. It was the most glorious day with brooding clouds, bright blue patches, and the sun shining brightly. We saw only a few people out in the distance and it was quiet and peaceful.

The beginning of our hike, just across from where my sister lives. It was only about noon and the sun was already almost obscured by the hills.

Off we go!
