” I wonder if the snow loves the trees and fields, that it kisses them so gently? And then it covers them up snug, you know, with a white quilt; and perhaps it says, ‘Go to sleep, darlings, till the summer comes again.'” (from “Alice in Wonderland”)


The snow drifted and blew and sank onto every surface, softening lines and blurring contours. It was beautiful.  A new look for NBI’s woods and beach: the trees a feature, not just a backdrop.






Some of us lucky enough to be here loaded up on firewood and cozied up inside with a good view out the window.  Others loaded up with gear, and got outside to walk and wonder and play.



Whatever the season, this lovely old land has so many gifts to give!
