 All Richard and Wal's fault for being patient enough to talk me through posting maps some time ago, and Gustavo's for assigning me map duty because he never seems to know where he's at.
 Running commentaries are his specialty  :015: .

  :whistle:

What do you mean?  I know exactly where I am at any given point in time.  For example, now I am here.  Tomorrow, somewhere else...   :whistle:

But I'm pretty sure I'll be here tomorrow night again.   :008:

Live report for Bart.  Rob took us on a boating trip to western NS today.  Strangely enough, we were on bikes.  I thought you needed a boat for that, but apparently, you can navigate the canals known here as highways on bikes too....   :015:

Yes, it rained quite a bit today.  We still had a good time (we being Rob, HK and your truly), exploring the southern coast line on the way to Yarmouth, at the very far west end of the province.  The few pictures I tried to take came out a bit too blurry due to the low light and wet conditions, so no photographic aids to this report.  We did make not one, but two stops at Tim's for some much needed hot beverages and calories.   :028:

Because of the rain, Rob won out today and we didn't make him stop at any cultural or touristy attractions.  He did give us a quick ride-through tour of Yarmouth and Shelbourne.   :biker1: :biker1: :biker1:    Probably enough to know that in better weather, I'd like to walk around a bit in both towns.    :008:

We had a great dinner here and now I'm supposed to be working on solving the world's problems, so that's it for tonight.

As Rob mentioned on Richard Picos thread, it's coming down pretty hard today, complete show with lightning and thunder.    :43: :125:


So, I am currently working on catching up with work and Rob is brewing the second pot of coffee.  Tough day...    :008:


It's supposed to pass in a couple of hours, so if that forecast is right, we may be out later to get some lunch in one of these awful touristy coastal towns.  You guys should definitely feel sorry for us and lucky you couldn't make it to the IVM.   :whistle:

Bummer on the weather,is one of you "paying" for something you have done recently ?

I was going to say that yesterday and today I had to use my vented gear here in Wales due to the heatwave we are having......but that would be unkind I think.

  "is one of you "paying" for something you have done recently ?"

 Must be Gustavo, his fault. I'm too old to do anything interesting any more  :2:.

 tbh I'd rather our rain, which ended around noon, than your heatwave  :exclamation:.

 Doesn't sound like any fun at all.
