We fired up
yesterday morning and drove the 6 kms (4 miles) or so over to Tracey’s place. We’re parked up on her front lawn overlooking the street, but it’s not a busy street and there’s a farm across the road, so it’s a decent spot for a few days. Sherman
Tracey was off to work, but her boyfriend Gary was here to welcome us. There’s been a lot of rain and the ground was a little soft so we parked on wood blocks which immediately sank into the ground. Still, we’ll be able to drive away on Tuesday with no problems.

Spent the morning filing our taxes. Because we only worked for six months of the year and we still paid a lot of school expenses for our son, we are officially “low income Canadians” and so we get the benefits that go along with that in
. No job, no money, no future! So we’re looking forward to a healthy tax refund over the next few days! Canada
After lunch, we took Whiskey for a walk along the dyke that separates the water in the
Minas Basin from the towns of Port Williams and Wolfville. Because of the high tides, there would be a lot of consistant flooding in these areas without this complex system of dykes that were built in the 1700’s to increase fertile farmland in the area. Most of the dykes are now also used as walking trails.

It turned into a decent afternoon. Even though the sun didn’t come out much, it was still t-shirt weather. I got the bikes off the back of
and put the proper amount of air in the tires in the hopes that we can go for a bike ride today. One of the benefits of where we are parked is that there are a lot of nice paved side roads that arean’t at all busy. This will be first time using the bikes since Sherman ! Mexico
No rain so far today, so maybe we’ll get some much needed cleanup done to
as well as the little car. Both of them need oil changes too, so maybe I’ll get ambitious enough to do that too. Sherman
Just noticed that our hit counter off to the right hand side is about to go over 100,000 today! I'll have to figure out how to get an extra digit there!
