Sunday was ski day at Incline. I don’t ski, I’m the photographer, mule. There is a lot of clothing, gear and ticketing, and waiting around.
The sun was very bright. The weather balmy. The predicted rain didn’t show.
Cedric dons his goggles.
No,wait! Virginia is going to wear the goggles. Cedric put on a light weight pair of sunglasses.
Sisters. Aren’t they sweet? Where did those goggles go?
Finally, they are ready to go. Kristanne is skiing for the first time since high school. Austin is skiing for the first time. Last year he chose snowboarding, but this was their togetherness plan. Notice that the dark clothing.
Am I supposed to pick them out from all the rest from a great distance?
Owen only uses a snowboard. Doesn’t like to ski. And, of course he does it in all black clothing.
Theo only skis. Dressed in black. Both boys use the big runs.
Both Austin and Kris had a brush up lesson and skied three of the beginner hills, which was fine with them.
The emergency services brought in this injured skier, a reminder of how dangerous this sport is. There were two accidents that day.
People like to start their kids at a very young age. This little guy didn’t ski, but he wasn’t much younger than others I saw on the bunny slope.
Mt. Rose Ski area supplies incentives by entertaining the kids and a disc jockey playing popular music LOUDLY that appeals to young people.
Everyone had fun. We packed a great lunch and everyone went out for a couple more hours. I read Virginia’s newspaper and started a new book.
At the condo the non skiers watched the Patriots vs. Ducks? Or Sea Hawks? And hung out visiting and snacking. We had another big family dinner. This time, I cooked the dinner of chicken boudin, Virginia prepared several salads to go with it. Doug’s and Virginia’s cookies, Cedric’s pies and Sees candy. No lack of desserts. Yum.
And, while we were gone, Laurie finished the puzzle.
