We did manage to go for a walk yesterday morning without getting drenched. In fact, the day turned out slightly better than was forecast, but the weather is still terrible.
We walked back down to
A nice campsite at Rissers Beach
A family out for a walk on the beach
Whiskey and Kevin heading for the tunnel under the highway
We stayed in the house during the afternoon because it kept looking like rain. It never did though, and we probably should have gone for another bike ride, but we thought we’d get soaked if we did. I know we go on about the bad weather quite a bit, but it really does affect what we do on a daily basis.
Anyhow, we spent much of the afternoon on the computers enjoying unlimited internet and electricity. Of course with all of this rain and cloud Sherman's batteries are not very charged so it’s nice that we can come inside.
I was looking at other blogs and blog links. It is amazing how many people have started blogs in the past and then never kept them up. I came across quite a few that haven’t been updated since maybe 2007 or 2008. I guess people just lost interest, or never gained the following they thought they would. Even though the main purpose of this blog is to keep a journal of our travels, we enjoy the fact that so many of you follow along with us and comment on our activities. I think it also forces us to get out and do things so that we have something interesting to talk about here! And, we’ve actually been able to meet some of our readers and that’s been a really worthwhile side benefit of our blog as well.
And there’s a lot of blogs out there that try and tell you how rich you can get from blogging. Our little bit of Adsense income is great and it’s growing monthly, but I’ll be surprised if it ever amounts to anything we can actually live off. And, it’s taken years to grow to this, not something you can hope to get right off the start.
It is currently pouring rain again this morning. We were actually supposed to leave today, but they say it’s going to stop raining after lunch and there’s still a bike ride we want to do in the area so hoping to do that this afternoon. Either way, we’re heading out of here tomorrow and going into the UNESCO town of
to do some exploring there. Lunenburg
