Boy, it was warm! Unlike on previous skiing trips, today there was no wind at all, the temperature was just below zero and the sun was shining. The island was really quiet in the morning, I had the whole place to myself. I zig-zagged in the forest, skied past the familiar buildings, and enjoyed a cuppa in the sun. By the time I got back, the shoreline was buzzing with people skiing, snow-shoeing, ice-fishing and walking. Snow-mobiles were driving around (which really spoils the atmosphere) and the parking lot was packed. Good thing I woke up so early this morning.
