On Saturday we spent about four hours working at the marina, most of which was spent cleaning the kitchen. Many more hours will be required before we reopen in the spring. Shortly after we arrived the two resident swans made an appearance, so I zipped down to the river with my cell phone to snap a few pictures. They are as slow and methodical about walking on the ice as I am. Not that I would ever consider going out onto the ice on the river.
On Sunday we drove south to Ithaca where we enjoyed a hearty lunch of polenta fries, antipasto, and wood-fired pizza before making a stop at Buttermilk Falls. The falls were almost completely frozen over in a gentle cascade of ice. I would've loved to have hiked up the trail along side the falls, but my husband's back was bothering him and a light rain was falling. Perhaps not the best conditions to tackle what was likely a slippery route.
We also dined with friends and family, watched a basketball game, and tuned in to the halftime show during the Superbowl.
Did you do anything fun or photogenic this past weekend?
