I just returned from my brief mama vacation!  
A snowstorm interrupted my photography opportunities considerably, but I may have some decent shots when I get a chance to preview.

For now, how I spent the snowy evening, tucked into the cozy bed and breakfast Almonte Riverside Inn, while the flurries flew.

The view really is spectacular during the day.  A sunny day preferably.   
Sadly what you cannot see in this shot is all the sleeping geese down at the shore.
And thankfully they DO sleep, because they make quite the racket during the day! 

Now Left Brain and I are off for an actual date night with some other parents seeking escape from all their respective minions this week!
