Warm memories and snowboarding fun, with the grands.

Where are we today ?
      Started off today looking at some warm pictures again, really helps set the pace for the day. This was our first year south Nov. 2006, another one of our favorite places to visit. Rockport Texas.
Thats me in front of the huge sign,
first time in Rockport Texas

Beach in Rockport Texas

      Then an early morning drive, taking the back roads to Plattsville and back, a nice sunny morning.
there is some pretty high snowbanks
along the roads
       Then home, got a text from daughter number 2 that they were at the Chicopee Ski and Summer resort  in Kitchener with the kids school, snowboarding for the day. Only 30 minutes away and we had some free time so Suzie and I took a quick trip to check things out and a nice visit with them.

       And here they are ready to hit the hills for a day of fun.

         Wish we could have stayed longer but had to get home for Suzie to take her Dad into Kitchener, and visit her mom. Besides that I have to be at the house for 1:30 we have a couple coming back to take a second look at the house, looks promising.
         They did spend almost an hour here and may get back to us, another couple  coming to see the house tonight at 7 pm. So were are getting some action before listing the house. Its just a wait and see situation. 
         Now Suzie back home about 4:30 I can begin super. Picked up some sole fillets at the store this afternoon after my indoor walkabout, couple miles at the Wilmot Rec center.
         We like this product below for fish, a very nicely spiced coating for frying fish. Was fried in coconut oil (couple minutes) until nicely browned. So tasty, it was and added to a yummy salad and a bit of our of our Turkey Waldorf salad from the other night.
Sure hit the spot!
       Now after supper (7pm) another showing of the house from another interested couple. If nothing comes of these tours the house will probably be listed in the near future.
       That was our fun day, (busy), warm memories and fun times on the ski slopes with our grands. The best of both worlds.
Check out the interactive map below to see where we have been this past Winter.

  3. My very first time on downhill skies was there on the bunny hill at Chicopee. Am thinking that was the winter of 94/95.

    1. I never had any desire to ski, or the money to do it with either.

  5. I'm glad to see you're making the most of that snow. Snowboarding is fun as long as there's lots of snow and you don't get hurt. These are memories in the making for those grandkids of yours.

  6. Fish Crisp, hmm, going to look for it. We like our Tilapia loins fried in coconut oil too but sometimes I like to offer up a change. Not sure if my store has it but I'll check it out! :)

    1. It is very light and tasty and a nice change.
      I have seen it at Canadian Tire, Bass pro, Home hardware, Cabella's and most grocery stores a favorite of fishermen.

    2. Canadian TIre sells food? Not in BC.

    1. Yep there is, possibility of a lot of spring flooding, if it thaws too fast.

    1. We enjoy every winter in the southwest, just this one was not long enough.

  10. Neat that the entire family snowboards together. Sending you positive thoughts that the house sells before you list it. Just think of the thousands you will save in a commission fee.

    1. They do enjoying things together as much as possible.
      This house is very nice and the view overlooking the Nith river is amazing.
