snow shoeing

Weekend get-away 
March 18-20, 2011

Tonio and I rented a gîte in the mountains for the weekend
(a gîte is something like a cabin in the states)
 warning lots of pictures...i'm never offended if you just scroll really fast - ha!
[because I don't EVEN know ;) wink, wink]

 about an hour or so from Nice

 Belvédère...the town we visited
(when I was little, I used to watch the show, Mr. Belvedere
-- brought back memories)

 view from the city

 talk about a definite dose of FRESH air

 enjoying my buddy

 town clock tower

 town cemetery...Tonio mentioned that the dead always get the best property

 view from our kitchen window - boulangerie just across the way

 drive to snow shoe

 snow shoes on our back packs - ready for action

 the snow was pretty deep in places

 we both had our fair share of "sink holes" - it was funny

 il faisait beau (it was beautiful)

 a little mountain goat, and he DIDN'T even run away, just plodded along

we felt like we had little pegs for legs when we took off the snow shoes
- weird feeling

 lunch break

 decided to head back down - started getting dark and snowing a bit

 we made it down just before it started raining at the bottom of the hill

 majesty!

 looks like a surfer and a wave...hmmm...

 beanie hair!

 spring is coming

 waterfall on the drive - looks fake

 view from our balcony in the EVENING

 TV dinner =)

  view from our balcony in the MORNING

 kitchen...wood, wood, happy...


fireplace, couch, dining table, my wonderful husband

 bathroom, wood, wood...

 our room

 balcony from our room

the loft upstairs - this place was huge -  more wood!
wood is a love of both mine and tonio's life, 
so needless to say, we were in heaven - 
wood houses aren't common here in France

 clock tower - view from the kitchen window

This weekend was a blessing to get away, relax, hang out,
and pray for direction.
We are so thankful to have had this opportunity.
Thank you Jesus!
