For those of you who read my blog, you know that I have taken a sabbatical away from Cruise Law News since December 19th.
Ten days without a single blog. A record!
After 100 articles in a little over three months, I needed a break. My readers probably did too.
My other excuse is that our family has been traveling since our kids got out of school for Winter break. This year, we went to visit my sister Robin who lives with her husband Mark and their cat (Harley) and two dogs (Wyett & Zoe) in Park City, Utah.
You will remember that Park City (and Salt Lake) hosted the 2002 Winter Olympics.
It is a great snow town and a lot friendlier (I am told) than some of the other resorts in Colorado. We spend a couple of weeks here every year in July - its a great place to hike, bike, camp, and fish.
My two boys are snow boarders. They had a great time. Its hard for me to get real motivated to do anything outside when it is just 5 degrees. That's probably why I live in Miami.
I am posting a couple of photographs from Park City from my low tech Cannon 1000. The photo above is the view of the canyon and mountains in Park City, taken from the condo. The photo below is my boys suited and ready for the slopes.
You can see a lot more photos on my Flickr page, Park City - Christmas 2009, which includes some good ones of Harley the cat and Wyett & Zoe, Yellow Labs.
It was good to get away from the frantic pace of Miami and unwind with my family. My brother-in-law Mark, a super skier, showed us videos and movies of intense skiing in Chamonix which my kids really enjoyed.
I have also included a short video of my boy's reaction when you go from a 100 degree hot tub into 10 degree snow!
Season's Greetings to my friends, family and clients.
I hope everyone has a safe and healthy New Year.
