Winter Blues

Over the years, we've had some wonderful family holidays in the snow.

Snow Angels at Thredbo 2006

The current cold snap in Sydney feels like snow.
Since it feels like snow (without any of the joys of being so cold), I will warm myself with some happy memories instead!

I'm not a skier.
I prefer to spend my days treking though the snow, drinking hot chocolate and taking pics of the family being active!

Approaching Falls Creek 2008

There they go, the brave adventurers!

We make a snowman every year, but this one from 2008 is my personal favourite.

  1. Great pictures of snow. I love the icicle photo. Red against white looks great. Thanks for stopping by! Regarding remote cars. I wondered the purpose of the remote control cars too! I think theu are used to retrieve javelins, discuses etc from the field.

  3. My favorite is the picture with the car and the foot of snow on top of it. I'd like to think snow too as we are in our 3rd month of over 90 degree temperatures. We've used the air conditioner a lot this summer, which we don't usually do. Here's Mine

  6. Seeing snow pictures in August is always a good reminder that the other hemisphere has different seasons, but certainly doesn't make me long for winter. Love the icicles and your very cute snowman.

  8. I like that snowman! And the shot of the trees is beautiful. On our hottest days, I think longingly of colder climes.

  9. Great shots ... and during our current dry heatwave, they are a welcome reminder of wintertime chill and water (snow!) ... looks like it was a fun vacation! The snowman attests to that!

  10. Really neat! It has only snowed once here in Texas in the last 4 - 5 years, I am hoping it does again soon. There are small divides between seasons here, and I am getting a little tired of it!
    Come see my snapshot for today.

  18. What wonderful family memories! I love your snowman too, and the icicles at Guthega. I'm not a skier either. I was always so much better at apres skiing. Actually I really want to go to Thredbo in the summer one time, I have a friend who goes every year and it looks wonderful.
