New Years in Cove

We decided to travel over the break after all...15 miles to Cove. We house sat for friends who were traveling even further. They live on several acres on the slopes of Mount Fanny. A 2.5 acre parcel of this land is actually what we've been talking about trying to buy. You can see the old barn, a spring and some cherry trees.

Our friends have an old farmhouse that's been fixed up and added on to, full of interesting little hiding places and cubby holes.

They have chickens and a rabbit too. Each morning the kids went to look for eggs, and they always came back with something. We played in the snow, read books, and had Meg and Chris and their two kids, Edan and Emily, over for New Years Eve.

We surprised the kids, sort of, with home made robes, crowns, swords and shields.

The most fun thing of all by universal acclaim was the hot tub on the back deck. We all took a soak at least three times each day.

At night you could see millions of stars; during the day, birds came to feed at the many nearby feeders.
