Wordless{ish} Wednesday - Snowboarding

J took the day off work yesterday and we went snowboarding in the afternoon.  We went to Camp Fortune which is just across the river in Gatineau Park.  It's not the biggest mountain, not even close, but it was pretty great for a beginner snowboarder like me.

I have all new gear and it makes me so happy.  Rental gear is gross.  I'm all set now - boots, a board and bindings, helmet and goggles.  All pink and purple and pretty.

The first time going up on the chairlift I was nervous, that shaky, jittery nervous, but excited too.  I snowplowed the whole way down that first run.  The second one too, but by the third I was ready to try turning.  I managed to string together a couple turns and then a few and my last two times down the hill I hardly fell.  It was exhilarating!

J put his new GoPro camera to work and got video of me and even some of him.  The best part: when he wiped out and got it on tape!

It was such a nice afternoon.  I'm stiff and sore but happy.  I'm a lucky girl.
