celebrating the Irish and spring -- part 1

Last weekend we revisited the cabin -- it had been a long time! Last winter had give us some harried experiences and so for first time in many moons, we missed out on a post-Christmas trek in. Turns out we were right to wait -- the roads were inaccessible, even with chains on a four-wheel drive! But we're a hardy couple, so we tromped in on foot the last bit.

It was quite evident there would be no dining al fresco this weekend!

First order of business was to shovel a path to the outhouse:

Next up, haul water from the pumps across the lake for the sauna we'd be needing after all the shoveling and hauling...

I'd actually had visions of sitting lake-front with a fire watching the sunset. Uh, no. That didn't happen. 

But of course there is one advantage to celebrating St. Patrick's at a snowy cabin:

Part 2 (next post) will show the incredible contrast between March at the cabin and March at home -- they are worlds apart!

    Winter wonderland! That's an incredible amount of snow. Wow. Nothing like getting back to basics, eh. I am certain that a snowy weekend at the cabin was as restful and rejuvenating as ever.

    1. It was! It was a lot of effort but worth it as always!
