Mr. T and I were able to take a brief getaway over the weekend -- from Friday evening to Saturday afternoon. We had been able to reserve a little cabin for one night and so left town around four p.m. We checked into our cabin and looked around --these are older cabins (built in the 1950s, by the looks) but very cute and well maintained.
We went out for an early dinner and enjoyed fish & chips, then came back to our cabin for the evening. The evergreen trees around the cabins were glowing with colored Christmas lights -- a lovely scene to come back to.
We had a relaxing evening by the fire
and a good night's rest.
In the morning, we went out for breakfast at a little restaurant nearby. It was so close, we could have walked, but decided against it as the temperature was 6 below 0º! I had a Western omelet, and Mr. T, a lumberjack breakfast which included French toast, scrambled eggs, home fries, bacon, and sausage!
We checked out of our cabin at ten. This is what it looks like by day.
The rest of the day was spent in shopping (I found some amazing buys at a thrift store) and we also went out to lunch, then did a bit more shopping before returning home around 3:30 p.m. We were gone less than 24 hours ... but we find this type of getaway very refreshing, and were thankful for the opportunity!
