54:365 Still coming down and Cute stuff

Ok, so we over did it a bit on pictures today... ;-)

Anna: After being stuck in the apartment for several days, we all headed to the 4th floor lounge to get a bit of physical activity on the squash courts. Here, you can see the door onto the 4th floor patio.

I wonder how they're going to open it to clear the snow away? In the winter, the staff will bring snow blower right through the lounge and through that door.












Remember this picture? It's the same window. Actually, the drift is a bit taller than it looks, as there's a bit of a gap, then the drift peaks a few inches higher. It's higher than I am tall, so it's over 5 1/2 feet.

Did I mention we were on the 4th floor?









We did get some interesting sculptures again. There was one corner drift this is part of, where the wind was constantly whirling around, then up and over to the other side, to be dumped onto the drift in the previous picture.









Philippe asked me to post these next ones for him. He *really* liked using my monopod to take the shots. Her Royal Highness was being cute again. :-D First, she claimed our younger daughter's lap again, preventing any further work on the scarf.























Then she decided to look down upon her subjects while perched on the back of the computer chair.

She hates flash.
