The sky has been very kind to us this week and Saturday was no exception. Sunday, however, was very foggy but Mount Seymour's website convinced us that those beckoning mountains were the place to be. Mount Seymour, in North Vancouver, boasts of being North America's number one snowshoeing resort so we headed on up in search of something new to try.
Before we went, the Model and I watched this rather amusing video, presented by Amanda Beauvais, so we had an idea of what to expect. Incidentally, if you watch the mini film, you must pay attention to her 'guest'. She had us tickled pink, with her 'grandma's footsteps' routine and animated face.
Snowshoeing is actually very popular and there were many other people who had the same idea. It is also great fun and surprisingly exhausting, though not exhilarating like skiing, of course, which was the main reason the children didn't share our enjoyment of this mountain exercise. During one of several particularly sulky moments, the Model even declared that Amanda Beauvais sucked. Oops, don't tell!
The reward at the end of the afternoon was the breathtaking sunset, high up above the thick clouds .. and then we drove down the mountain into the fog once more.
Have a lovely week, everyone.
