Two feet of fresh snow has preoccupied us the last several days. It broke a record for snow in December here, turning our little town into Currier and Ives prints, and giving us fun things to do outside. Between playing in the snow and holiday preparations there’s been precious little time for boatie things – which seem strangely foreign at the moment, as though Summer is a place in the South Pacific. It is time well spent, though.
In the meantime, it is Christmas Eve, and a good time to share a little cheer.
If you must have some connection with boats in this, look carefully and you’ll see the Walnut for my transoms still drying by the door in the picture above, behind the skis, and in this video greeting card below. That’s Emily and the Three Stooges playing in the snow.
Here’s to a great New Year.
