Snow! mother used to love to watch the snow and, as my husband reminded me, so do I.  It's a rare treat to get a pretty snow. , we didn't have blue snow.  I did something in the editing process.  No idea WHAT I did or how to fix it.  Tsk.  My car, parked beside the old house on our property. 

Our front yard -- I took this from our front porch.

Front porch...all of these pictures were taken a couple of hours ago.  The snow's gotten considerably deeper by now - but it's dark.  I'll ramble more tomorrow, perhaps.

To heck with all that wet stuff - let's relax by the fire!

Til next time~~

Brief Escape - Part 2

Here are a few more pictures from our Outer Banks trip last week...

Polly wanna -- oh, wait, I'm not a parrot.

Eastern view of the sound.

I think I already posted this one.

The screened-in porch where the hot tub lives.

Getting darker...

Surf fisherman...

The Frisco Pier isn't faring so well...and is closed now.

A dune (no, really?) ...

Lovely, isn't it?

The marina near the ferry from Hatteras Village to Ocracoke.

Another marina shot.

Nice little "boat," huh?

How to avoid adding to the landfill!

That's all folks - unless, that is, you'd like to see more dune photos.

Til next time~~
