Although at first the quiet was restful, it soon got old...and COLD.
Now serving...icicles on the terrace!
I tried to photograph the icy trees, but this doesn't do them justice. It was a dazzling spectacle, until you realized what havoc those twinkly trees caused.
Winter wonderland? I think not.
We were almost ready to board Echo and stay in a hotel when the lights came back on. Although it was involuntary, the experience gave us a new appreciation for modern conveniences and simple things such as heat, light, food, shelter, warm clothes, and hot water. We have a lot to be thankful for.
Happy holidays and keep warm!
