Tuesday 26 June 2012: On No Sno!
The Boss is given to some strange behaviour at times...
Just ask The Bossess. And this morning dawned with 2 degrees, big ugly clouds forming in the North West, and a terrible weather report so he rang up MY FRIEND PETER who was equally strange as they both decided to go up the mountain. Well Well Well....Actually NOT... as Peter was getting over the first Stile (wooden and complete with ice on the steps) A over K he went sitting down quite hard right as a lovely older lady was walking past who remarked that she had just done the same at the next stile down the track OK Ice Warning!!!
Boy it was chilly and The Boss was wearing his Acadia National Park (Maine) thick jacket and a woolly hat and Chinese gloves
(Memo to The Boss..For goodness sake get some that are home grown)
The next 2 stiles were carefully negotiated and we started to climb...Err What's that funny white stuff falling out of the sky. Feels OK on my soft coating so it can't be rain? Oh goodness I can't see up the track any more. BUT in spite of this the intrepid two + a dog keep plodding up and up into this wonderful world of white with occasional camera stops (Peter offers to hold his hat over the camera to keep it dry) NOW there's a real friend...right! And finally we make the top. And it has stopped snowing...And it is all white, all right and it feels funny on my feet....Weeeee!
