We are parked in the country among farmers fields, and the secondary roads in this area are not busy...there are almost as few cars as there are farm tractors that go by! So it's a nice area to go for a bicycle ride...
Ruth needs a new bike though. This one is a cheapo Walmart bicycle that we had bought for our son Alex, probably more than 10 years ago! And the sun and sea salt from being in Mexico has just about taken it's toll on it. We'll look for a used replacement when we get parked up in Ottawa next month. And mine needs some cables replaced, but is in otherwise serviceable condition.
Anyhow, we had a nice 10km (6.2 mile) bike ride through farm country.
On our way to Lindsey's, we stopped at The Source to buy a couple of two way radios that they have on sale for $29.95, regular $64. When we leave for Ottawa on Wednesday we will have the car with us so Ruth will be following in the little car while I drive Sherman. With a couple of two way radios, we can talk to each other. They say this particular model is good for 25kms (15 miles) but even if that's an unrealistic expectation they should still work fine for the distances we want them for. Anyhow, they were sold out but have ordered another set in for us and we should be able to pick them up Tuesday afternoon.
Then we were on grandparenting duty last night while Lindsey and Justin went to spend the evening with friends.
Today is starting off beautiful, not a cloud in the sky. We're going for a hike to an area called Cape Split, and Lindsey, Justin, and Cameron are coming with us. It's a long hike at 16 kms (10 miles) so we're leaving Whiskey behind this time.
