On our second Christmas there, some dear friends surprised us with a gift of snowshoes! Even better these snowshoes had belonged to them for quite some time, so have many memories in them. This wonderful gift made our lives so much easier back then. It was a lot easier getting back and forth to the barns and much easier to carry water to the house. No more sinking up to your knees or higher in the snow banks!
We also enjoyed many walks through the bush with these. Now the lacings need to be shellacked again, hopefully I'll be able to get that done this year!
