Today when we woke up it was looking pretty dreary outside but I decided to go up to the resort anyway. Unfortunately, when we arrived at Stoneham it was an all out downpour. So, I spent most of the morning in the lodge. We were given vouchers to spend at the resort so we went to the their onsite restaurant for lunch. I had a delicious sandwich! It was made with goat cheese, carmalized onions, roasted peppers and olive paste on a french baguette. While we were sitting here finishing our lunch it stopped raining! We decided to hit the slopes! Stoneham was a nice mountain, there were small cottages and chalets right next to the slopes.- I wouldnt mind having on of these! A few of the trails winded down through the trees and one even went over a bridge with a stream running underneath it. The scenery was beautiful.
When we got back from skiing my roomate and I decided to walk down to St John Street to take some photos and do some shopping. We stopped at a lovely cafe called Crepes Breton where I tried an authentic sweet French crepe. Mine was served with strawberries and bananas and topped with warm chocolate syrup. Soooo good!
That night as we prepared to go out it started snowing like crazy and was reallllly windy. We went to a bar that appeared to be built into a large rock that was lit by candles alone. It was very quaint. I sipped wine, listened to the French singer and unwound a bit, then forced myself to go back out in the cold. It was so windy that I could barely walk! All of the hurricanes I made it through while living in Florida were nothing compared to this. At several points I even had to stop and hold onto street lights to keep myself from being blown over! Luckily when I made it back to the hotel all of my limbs were still attached! I wrapped myself up in the plush down comfortor and dreamed of my last day of skiing tomorrow!
