We arrived in Winter Park in time to get our reserved lockers at the ski area base, drive into town and pick up our reserved rental skis, boot, and poles, and then take that equipment back out to the ski area and put it in the lockers. Then we unloaded the van and waited for our daughters and their husbands (and our grandson) to arrive.
Last night was an early night since everybody was fatigued from their travels and the unaccustomed high altitude.
Today we skied! I’m typing this before dinner time. We will take our meal here at the lodge dining room and then return to our quarters for games, or a movie (depending on how energetic everyone is).
Ski conditions could hardly be better. This area has had FEET of snow in the last month, and about 18 inches in the last week. Last night we got a slight dusting, but there’s plenty of powder to last for a LONG time. The forecast for all this week is clear skies and sunshine. Conditions should remain just about perfect.
I just checked my email and have another rejection from another agent. This one is quite disappointing as I have a lot of regard for her. It’s Kirsten Nelson (the Nelson Literary Agency), the lady who seems to speak “common sense” in her web info and her blog. If I thought I could change her mind I’d try, but that’s a hopeless cause. Guess I’ll just start snail-mail querying after this trip and see if anybody will take a shot at pitching this book of mine. There are lots of agents, and as they all say, “It just takes one!”
I won’t be able to post every day, but will try to keep you informed of our snowy adventures when I can. Michelle, sorry about all your heat. I’ll eat some snow and think about you!
