Family Time: Rest Day with my Daughter

Sunday January 8, 2017

Enjoyed my first rest day, just hanging out with Erin and Matt. I had hoped for nice sunny, warm weather here but warm it was not. I think the high today was 38 F but it felt colder with the wind. Not to fear, as the forcast for next week calls for highs in the 70′s. perfect riding temperatures.
I caught up on all my tasks i.e. blog, Facebook, Instagram, emails and texts. I also put together a short movie about this first week of touring. (see bottom of page). Most of this was done lounging on the couch with my feet propped up. Nice life.

Erin has been quite the host. This morning, I was greeted with fresh coffee, sausage, egg and a banana pancake topped with real maple syrup I had brought back from Quebec from our tour last August. When did she become so domestic? I’m a very lucky man to have two children who have grown into fine adults.

I also got to spend time with my grand dog, Brie, the fluffy Goldie-doodle puppy.

She's a lot of fun and energy and makes me laugh. I'm missing my French Bulldogs, Griz and Gena so having a puppy to pet is nice. Also spent some time in Matt's PlayStation, Virtual Reality headset, exploring ocean depths, collecting salvage and being attacked by great white sharks. Pretty cool.

Erin and Matt playing a game involving teamwork and preparing meals. Too funny.

Today’s activity will be more of the same with the addition of getting Clara’s wheel. Erin and Matt are off to work so I’ll need to entertain myself. Let’s see what mischief I can get into.
