A Wintry Weekend

First snow in Quidi Vidi
We had our first brush with winter here in St. John's over the weekend.  Last winter we had a pretty amazing run of snowy Friday nights and clear blue skied weekends that were perfect for getting out and snowshoeing and generally enjoying the season.  This weekend seemed to pick up right where last winter left off.  Lori and I got out an about around town and headed into the woods to pick up a Christmas tree. 

Quidi Vidi

On Sunday, we went out Christmas tree hunting.

Usually, we try to escape Christmas and go to a cabin or somewhere warm, but this year we're embracing it.

Cutting a harpoon shaft, err... Christmas tree

I think this is how Dexter got his start.

More Quidi Vidi.  I suppose I should mention that we didn't harvest our tree in Quidi Vidi - this was a different trip.
