Zack woke me up before 8 am today. I really really did not want to get up, but Zack was insistent. Today was meant to be a day off, a morning to sleep in until my eyes opened of their own accord. However, Zack had other ideas. He wanted the loo.
Having quickly fallen back to sleep, the next thing I knew was when Zack came round to my side of the bed again. Nudge, nudge went his nose against my shoulder. Out came my hand to stroke his flank – an automatic reaction. Zack was not satisfied. I would get no more sleep. Peering at my alarm clock, I noticed that it was only just 8:45 am; what did that dog want that I should have to get up for it? Perhaps he needed to go out again. I knew he had just returned from a walk, but if he needed to go, then he needed to go!
Up the stairs I went in search of Hubby. Zack moved unhurriedly behind me and . . . the cheek of it! . . . went to lie down. After waking me up? Hubby, as I suspected, was sitting in the lounge and enjoying a cup of tea. As I walked into this calm oasis, what an amazing sight greeted my eyes: a world of white glistening under a golden sun! It was absolutely gorgeous. Although I haven’t quite managed to catch it in the photograph, the Lake looked like it was frozen. ‘Thank you, Zack, for waking me up after all!’
I walked through all the rooms in our B&B and went from one window to the next, looking out in awe at the most wonderful views of Winter wonderland. Hubby said I should take some photos and I stepped outside for a few moments to do so. The world lay sleeping at my feet – a restful hush untouched by breeze or movement. It was so beautiful I wanted the snow to lay forever, offering up as it did this magical scenery of lake, mountains and woodland.
It is this scenery I want to share with you. I took lots of photos and so did our son. The lake and mountain views from our Bed and Breakfast are always stunning, but we do not get much snow, so this is really special. I hope you enjoy looking at the photos I have included in this post.
Why not come and share this scenery with us? You would be made most welcome! And remember, do take advantage of our SPECIAL OFFERS!
