Back to Basics
March 3, 2015
This month, Eliane fled for a weekend along with her little bunch and her nephew to Au Diable Vert resort in Sutton.
What did they find? A beautiful rustic shack. What did they not find? Power, running water, bathtub, or shower. None of the things that make our daily lives a little more comfortable, but so many memorable moments! The four explorers went snowshoeing under the trees, and also did a lot of sledding. Eliane and Steve even had to rescue the children who repeatedly stayed stuck in the high snow. It was higher than their waists! They also got caught by a surprise snowstorm. It was this bad that the children’s lashes turned into icicles, making them look like adorable snow elves!
Eliane really wanted to share this experience with Emma and Nicolas. She wanted to give them a few days to take the time to live away from the daily life, away from computers, away from tv sets, from phone calls, and emails. She wanted to give them a few days with people who love them dearly, build memories, and be there for them and only for them.
The long road to the lodge as well as carrying luggage for 4 people not to mention all the snow equipement made travelling not the easiest thing. Once there, one very important item was missing: Emma’s snowpants. Thankfully the owners of the resort had a spare pair of pants to lend Emma.
Thank you to this amazing family!
