The third major winter storm in less than a week is upon us – Heavy dark clouds dumping continuous rain, and days and days of sustained winds up to Gale force in our neighbourhood is not good weather for very small wooden girls to go for an outdoor stroll. So instead, Opal and Agathe visited a seasonal forest in the lobby of the Empress Hotel…
Different businesses decorate a tree, and you can vote on your favourite one, with over 50 trees to choose from. The girls were no use helping to decide – whichever one they were climbing around in was the one they liked best at that moment.
…though Agathe was particularly smitten with the BC Road-Builders…
..and Opal thought the wings on the local Market’s tree looked exactly her size…
They liked the stuff beneath the trees too, alas there were no reindeer to pull the sleigh, and anyway it was full of limes!
…Opal convinced Agathe to take a little swing in the Coho Ferry hammock, which resulted in gales of laughter!
As soon as they got home, they began wheedling for us to put up the Quimper Hitty Christmas Tree. We like to decorate the Hitty tree with orphan earrings, but it doesn’t go up till closer to Christmas, so they have a while to wait.
