with all the time I have spent in Canada and in the US in sub-human temperatures and snow conditions, fred got curious so I had to endulge him.
Last weekend we went to the only place in Portugal where you can get some skiing done.
Needless to say we are like fish out of water, and that stuff is not for us...
This place has snow at the very top, for a few weeks and they have these machines that make snow, also.
Anyway...that stuff...not for me...Fred liked it, but it was too cold.
Luis did what he does best while we spent the day skiing
By the way, on the way there, I passed an army Base and saw an M-48-A5 outside on display. we stopped and guess what,..thyat was my thank when I went to the Army..of all M-48 only 3 survived, mine was one of them...so I got some nostalgic photos too. I was in Cavalary in Santarém, in the early 80's.
Fred couldn't believe all that steel....
And so that no one says this is not sailing related...
Here is a photo taken yesterday, 25 gusting 30's...high seas and cold.
