Spring Skiing

It was a most excellent weekend up north. Saturday consisted of spring skiing. It was actually very nice weather, even if it looks a bit dark and gloomy in this photo. I think the extraordinary glow of the leis worn by the guys caused the rest of the photo to be less bright. The camera phone's auto-light-adjust simply did not know how to handle such radiance. Shoulda brought my real camera.

I wore my Hawaiian shirt from a couple of years ago, and although it looks a bit drab in the photo, in fact it was quite bright also. I got lots of compliments on it, and all our colors made it quite easy to spot one another on the slopes. (Sadly SG couldn't join us on the slopes because of boot problems, so she spent the afternoon in the spa with the foos. Happily she joined us for the rest of the weekend!!)
