We would like to thank you for your very awesome Christmas gift! We would have never thought to rent snowshoes for a weekend and go tromping off into the snow!
We went this weekend up to Jackson, New Hampshire and spent a couple nights at the Ellis River House|http://www.ellisriverhouse.com. It was a cozy little bed and breakfast|http://gallery.prwdot.org/nh_weekend/IMG_2980 with nice views of the White Mountains and a fantastic breakfast!
Saturday we ventured out early to Jackson Ski Touring Foundation|http://www.jacksonxc.org Lodge and got ready to do a little snowshoeing. Peter picked it up quite nicely, considering his being a newbie to winter sports. I enjoyed the snowshoes, but those nicely groomed nordic tracks|http://gallery.prwdot.org/nh_weekend/IMG_3008 were calling my name and I soon exchanged my shoes for skiis. I’ve never skiied on nice tracks like that and it was incredible! I may be spoiled for life now.
Tired, cold and wet we went back to the inn and eased our muscles in the hot tub for a while, went out for some dinner and grabbed dessert at the North Conway McDonald’s. Do you remember that one we went to with Greg, Sue and Pete with the Ski Gondola tables|http://gallery.prwdot.org/nh_weekend/IMG_3042? Fun, fun.
Being unable to resist the temptation we succumbed to the lure of the N.Conway outlet shops after a yummy breakfast and relaxing Sunday morning. We didn’t buy much but got to see some fine ice sculptures being carved.
It was a great weekend away and we thank you so much for giving us the little kick in the pants we needed to get outside.
Love, Becky and Peter
