January 3, 2011 (Day 3)

Just one pic today.  It was the first day back to school and I had a LOT of catching up to do.  I did manage to get a walk along the beach in before sunset.

The Lake Superior beach at sunset today.  Lots of ice on shore!

January 2, 2011

Here are a few pics from this great day before I pack up and head back to Terrace Bay.

Crazy icy roads on the TC near Thunder Bay.  The highway was closed here last night and closed about 500 m up the road today again for accidents.

Gorgeous skiing at Kamview Nordic today in Thunder Bay.

Kamview Nordic is such a pretty place to ski.

Crossing the bridge back into Thunder Bay after gassing up!

Making the best of the overripe bananas after the holidays.

Very healthful banana-wild blueberry-walnut-flax-wheat germ muffins.

Less healthful mincemeat tarts.

A female pine grosbeak waiting for her turn at the feeder.

A timid male pine grosbeak - the females drive them away from the feeders.

A couple of pumpkin pies to get us through the week.

January 1, 2011

Ever since I moved to Thunder Bay I have been fascinated by the patterns of the snow on the balsam trees.  It creates such an interesting effect on the landscape.

Sadly, the "partridge in a beer tree" needs to come down soon.  January 1 was a cold, windy day on the lake. 

One of hundreds of chickadees that spend winter at our feeders.

Working hard on the rink.  It has not been a good year for making ice.

From the lake.

Our new feeder!

A New Years tradition at the lake.

I am NOT going for a run!

Lots of big plans for lots and lots of skiing this winter.

This is me on January 1, 2011 - full of hope for the new year.
