Nobody knows how to have more fun with winter than the folks with the Ancient Mariners Canoe Club. They come several times during the year -- and no, in January they don't bring their canoes... They swap them for skis and snowshoes.
And nobody got better weather this year than they did. It's been glorious out there, and the gang certainly made the best of it. It was pretty late in the day before they rolled back indoors for happy hour!
Ralph kindly provided us with photos of some of their excursions. Along with others in the group, Ralph snowshoed to the Lookout to check out the overview of Bondi in winter's white.
Up near the Hawk's Lake Ralph found himself skiing over fresh wolf tracks up near the Hawk's Lake trail. While there were plenty of tracks, and they saw lots of deer, nobody this week caught sight of the other half of that balancing equation, the wolves themselves!
They did find a set of rabbit tracks, that sadly for the rabbit but happily for the owl ended abruptly, with just the hint of wings traced beside them in the snow. And they spotted a snowshoe hare, busily laying down his own set of tracks.
The sun out was so bright, and the temperatures mild, and it was just not possible to stay indoors!
