I went cross-country skiing last week for the first time since high school. And I lived, with all bones and joints intact!
Friends and I drove up to Cypress in the afternoon, swooshed around in the snow for a while, stopped for dinner at the lodge, and then swooshed around again in the dark. Who knew winter could be so stunning?
AND, as a bonus, I found a cabin where Silence can live when she embarks on her hunter/trapper career.
