After weeks of grey and stormy weather, with half a metre of new snow in the past week, we FINALLY woke up to blue skies and sunshine on Sunday. Of course we had to take advantage of that 🙂 so we drove to Tønsvik to go skiing in the valley there.
The first bit was really lovely in the sunshine, but soon we got hit by a snow shower that seemed to last forever. The snow flakes were enormous and quite pretty, but we got covered in wet snow which my down jacket didn’t like too much. After a break for sandwiches and chocolate, we watched the blue skies return 🙂
We even got the sunshine back! We weren’t sure, as it was after 18:00 by then and we thought the sun might be behind the mountains. The days are getting very long very quickly, I’m loving it!
The light was beautiful on the way back, a warm golden light 🙂 The way back was downhill all the way, with some very fun descents, and we made it back to the car by 19:00.
Such a nice trip! When the weather is grey for such a long time, I really start longing for spring, and really envy people back home who can already sit out in the garden and enjoy spring flowers. But when the sun finally comes out after we’ve had fresh snowfall, I completely forget that and just enjoy our long winter 🙂
That’s all, hopefully more soon as I still have so many photos to share! I have some days off this week, so I might finally find time to get them online 🙂
