The Hounds of Winter

The Hounds of Winter?

I think they are like the Dog Days of Summer, only colder.

I still see her face
As beautiful as dayIMG_0735

It’s easy to remember
Remember my love that way

All I hear is that lonesome sound

The Hounds of Winter

They follow me down

Gidget and I took a ride up to Da’ Reef to check out the summer place. Gidget met up with Possum for a little cross country skiing.

The lake was frozen solid, 2 or 3 feet thick the ice fisherman we spoke with said.

  1. We went up 2 weekends ago to check things out and drop off some things at the trailer……well what a dream that was, not a chance of getting in with snow drifts up to the roof & doors buried. Very cool winter scene though! Can’t wait for spring.

  2. Great pics! I must say I’m shocked to see so much snow at the reef. I’m glad the ladies got a good xc skiing session in. Enjoying the outdoors at the reef is truly four seasons.
