I have spoken before about “arctic cabin fever” and the need to get outside as soon as you get up to shake off the dark and cold. Bottomly and I took a very early morning walk today, starting at about 6:30 am.
“I feel like I am at home here” Bottomly mused while we were walking. “Of all the Rockweather Guys, I suppose I am the only one who can genuinely claim to be a Polar Bear, what with being white and a bear.. Unlike you, I don’t need all that Icebreaker clothing you’ve got on either. I am a true native here !!”
“So you might have been born here, up near the Arctic circle?”‘
“Er..no” he quickly replied. “There is a label sown to my back that says ‘Dry Clean Only’ and ‘Made in China’.”
Cottages like this are everywhere in this area. The morning arctic sky was something I quickly grew to love..
