In the past 2 days, Sandra and I went to the White Mountain in New Hampshire. I always wanted to have a white winter vacation. Now I am living in Boston with so many pretty snow mountains nearby. It's just perfect for me to fulfill my dream! We stayed in an old hotel called Omni Mount Washington Resort. The hotel was built in 1902 and is a 5-star hotel. The hotel is beautiful.Though it's old, the hotel has done a great job updating it. The lobby was just fabulous. Very comfortable and inviting. There were many facilities that we could find plenty to do at the hotel itself. I really loved sitting in the lobby by the fireplace to enjoy a sip of tea. Our hotel room was spacious and comfortable (although the heat was quite noisy!) The view outside the windows was so nice. I think if I could afford the time, I would have sit beside the windows to relax for a whole day! We arrived at the hotel at about 12pm. After checking in, we rushed to the outdoor pool. Yes. We were swimming outdoor! The pool temperature was adjusted to 85F, so it's warm enough to swim in whatever weather. It was such an amazing experience to swim in a pool surrounded by snow mountains. And it was also my very first time to swim in the snowfall! Out next activity was, of course, to walk around and take pictures. The mountain view was gorgeous! You could simply shoot a photo from whatever angle and the photo MUST be pretty (I guarantee it!). We also made our first snowman. It was difficult! I really had no idea how people could manage to make a big one! Sandra and I tried a long time just to make a very very small one! In the evening, we just relaxed ourselves in the hotel lobby. There was a handbell Christmas music performance that night. It's my first time listening to handbell ringers performance. It was great. We also used the jacuzzi in the hotel. It's really comfortable. But I just couldn't use it for too long. I felt dizzy after using it for 20 mins (due to my high blood pressure, maybe?).
The next day, we just took a scenic drive around the White Mountain, since we were really not quite in the mood for skiing. It was a great drive! So many beautiful scene, but the driving experience was petrifying as well! Overall the trip was wonderful. We thank Miss Car for riding us to such a beautiful location. We love her! We also thank our Lord for giving us such a wonderful chance to relax. Thank Him for giving us a safe trip too!
Sandra enjoyed her hot cocoa so much, as you can tell..hehe!
