It was raining in Halifax this morning and has been gray all day. I slept in late and then did some route planning for Newfoundland and Labrador. Tried to book a ticket on the ferry to Newfoundland for Tues only to find that the one I wanted was full. Now I have to take the 4pm ferry that gets into Newfoundland at 10:30pm AST. That sucks as no way I am riding at night so I booked a hotel in Port aux Basques and will start out from there on Wed morning. I’m supposed to have a conference call on Friday but I will probably be in far northwestern Newfoundland by then so I will need to switch it around.
When the rain stopped today I made my way to Dalhousie University and rode around checking out the old stomping grounds. Not much has changed in 20 years. The apartment I rented is still there and the campus looks a bit long in the tooth… maybe it was the gray skies that did it.
I spent the afternoon downtown, drinking beer and watching Germany come in 3rd at the World Cup. It was a good game. I have a lot of riding to do tomorrow to make it to North Sydney by 3:30 to watch the final! GO SPAIN!!! VENGA, VENGA!!!
BTW… I try to take the unused 19mm socket back Canadian Tire and they won’t take it without a receipt… which I threw away, of course, since a round-the-world biker dude doesn’t carry unnecessary papers!!! That will be the last $7 they ever get out of me!
OH… now the rain is going to be coming more often and it is going to get COLD!!!! BOO!!!!! We shall see if I am prepared 🙂
