A Walk in the Snowy Woods

Breaking in the snowshoes – or are they breaking us in?

This tree doesn’t seem to know which way is up.

    Amazing to see such thick snow, and the snow covered trees. I don’t think I could manage the snow boots. (coming from Australia!) We have just taken some photos of a thick wood of trees here in Sydney Australia. One of the joys of blogging is seeing the immediate differences in our world….thanks for sharing…

      Thanks! I’m so glad you enjoyed the photos. It was peaceful and still in the woods yesterday. The snowshoes are not as difficult as they look 😀. Thankfully! It was our first time on them. Immediate differences, indeed. We have been enjoying an amazingly (but peculiar) mild December. Christmas Day was sunny and warm – people on the beaches in t-shirts……. Then two days ago …. A blizzard!

      A very Happy New Year to you, Julie! 🎉😀

      Yup! That’s pretty much exactly what happened. It was a lot off fun, though.

    Janet! Happy New Year! Wow, such gorgeous photos you’ve posted! How beautiful the snow and trees are…such a different sight from where I’m at in NYC (Brooklyn to be exact!) Hope all is well with you and I wish you a spectacular start to the New Year! Here’s to many more days of beauty and joy!

      Thank you, Lia! What a beautifully worded sentiment. I wish you the very same – an abundance of joy and beauty in 2016….. aaaand a little bit of adventure, too. 😀 I expect that Brooklyn and Rose Bay are very different indeed – but not so far apart. I’d love, love, love to do some exploring there some day.

        Thank you too Janet! Indeed our home towns are a different but at the same time, close! I would love to have you visit Brooklyn and be your guide! Great food and shopping here..lots of ethnic neighborhoods that make you feel as if you’ve traveled abroad with no jet lag!
        Much love!
        Lia

    There has barely been a hint of snow over here in England, so this post made me smile 🙂
