Old Fool's Weekend Fiftieth Anniversary
|The smoke is curling from a cottage|
A bunch of us traveled to Quebec this past Valentine's Day weekend to spend time at our cottages and to enjoy the beauty of winter while trekking on snowshoes.

The little cabin in the second shot was so warm (a small space heater was provided) that the occupants had to turn the heat down.
We were all greeted Friday night by an impressive bonfire that could be seen from a great distance. Though the night was chilly the heat from the bonfire was impressive. Of course, a few can of beer helped.
Most of us spent the entire day, Saturday, on the ice immediately in front of the cottages. Some were unable to join us for the day on the ice because of a strange sickness that befell them as a result of a little indulgence the night before. Did I say they drank too much? Anyway to each his own.

The highlight of the weekend was the feast and awards ceremony. Needless to say everyone was a winner. It was a great time as as one participant said "It was awesome".
