Ferries & Flurries - #SaturdaySnapshots

When the Auburn Senior Activity Center took the ferry to Vashon Island for a hike, we expected a few snowflakes mixed in with light rain. We got more than that! (Click on photos to enlarge.)


Since everyone dressed for cold and wet weather, we were comfortable and dry. The snow made our surroundings even more beautiful. 




Following our hike with a hot lunch in the town of Vashon made for a fun day. Luckily, the snow didn't stick to the roadways on the drive back home.

Oh snow, how I miss you!

I used to go skiing with my family every Christmas. Nowadays I'm content to walk in the snow or enjoy its beauty from a warm place indoors.
Thanks for commenting on my post, Vicki.

This is our first winter at home in 5 years so we've been enjoying bundling up and doing wintery things.

I'm sure you'll find plenty to do in Toronto during the holidays. I always enjoy your photos from around the city, and I'm looking forward to more during the coming year.
Thank you for stopping by my blog today.

I haven't ever hiked in the snow- my sister is returning from University on the East Coast and telling me how hard it is, but I'm determined to try it some day!

Poem Fanatic: Although quite a bit of snow came down, it didn't stick; so walking in it wasn't difficult. It was like walking in soft rain! So beautiful.

Looks like another gorgeous hike, Sandra. You live in such a beautiful place!

We got quite a bit of snow here last week - way more than is normal for December!

Enjoy your week -

Sue
