WINTER  AT WICKWOOD

These days may be snowy or balmy – we never know! The Farmer’s Almanac says that 2008 will be a mild winter – but we take it day by day, sometimes moment by moment. One day it feels like Spring – the next we can build a snowman in the front yard.

Our world moves a little slower this time of year and it’s always a great time to hunker down at the Inn with a book, Scrabble, or old fashioned letters.
Take time for:
Hot Chocolate • Sleigh rides • Fireside chats • Cheese fondue • Making snow angels • Woolen mittens • Catching snow flakes in your mouth • Ice skating • Hot spiced cider • Snowball fights • Red wine & Roquefort.
