2011 Myopia Sled Dog Race

On Saturday, January 15, 2011, New England Sled Dog Club Inc., presented the Myopia Sled Dog Races at Appleton Farms in Ipswich and Hamilton, Massachusetts. This was my first time seeing such an event and it was a very interesting and exciting event to watch. So glad that we got lots of snow last week for this event. Honestly, I felt like I was in Alaska...Not something you would usual see here in Massachusetts...very very cool!(and it was also an extremely frigid day)

A Day in Salem

Saturday I spent the afternoon in Salem MA with my friend Julia and her daughter Jen.
First we went to a little pub named "In a Pig's Eye" along Pickering Wharf.

After a yummy lunch we walked along Pickering Wharf...

Then walked our way to Hawthorne Hotel's Tavern on the Green for a drink.
We sat at the bar and chatted with Dave, the bartender...

And also met Patrick who was kind enough to take a photo of the three of us.

Craig and Iris

My step-son Craig came up from Florida to spend Christmas with his dad and me this year.
It was great to have him here. And then on Dec 28th, his girlfriend, Iris, flew down to Boston from Stoney Creek Ontario.  It was the first time that we have met her and we loved her instantly. Craig and Iris had a wonderful 6 days together and we loved having them both at the house. They both are flying out today, sunday January 2nd from Logan airport...Craig to Florida and Iris to Canada. We will miss them both and I know that they will miss each other....
I had the chance today to take some fun photos of them.
