Skiing to Renaud Lodge

March 23, 2013
It was good to see redpolls visiting the Chelsea boys bird feeder.

It was also fun to see Samuel and Grant trying out the new sliding hill, with help from Boots and Chester.

David smiled as he was loaded into the car for a ski trip to Lac Philippe. As soon as they arrived, Kirk set up the chariot and he was on the trail.

Today Samuel skied all the way to Renaud Lodge and back, with a little help from his friends.

Conditions were warm so some used waxless skis and others used purple extra.

As we turned into Renaud cabin trail, we admired some rabbit tracks.

We all enjoyed our lunch. David showed off his new eating (sucking) skills.
After lunch, Sam and Grant skied a cabin trail. Sam also tried feeding the shy chickadees. We resorted to ``lancer les graines`` so the birds could enjoy them later.


Soon it was time to head back home for naps.

Sam learned how to pole, and how to take off his skis and carry them to the car. Luckily he may get in a few more practice runs before the warm spring weather melts the trails.
