This is so much fun. Yesterday as it fell in fat heaps so gently from the thick sky, I was reminded that I have X-country skis! Snap! Snap! and I am off on the streets and sidewalks of West Seattle. I skied down to Kitty and Jeff’s house for a tea, then back home again. The streets were quiet of cars and busy of people out having fun. People of all ages walking, sliding, teenagers in particular rendered children again by the unexpected.
My favourite scene from yesterday was when we walked over to the pub; several pairs of X-country skis and poles were parked outside leaning on either side of the door. Classic. The pub was packed with people and dogs and everyone, EVERYONE, was happy. I wish it was like this all winter.
