Not much to report for yesterday as it was another work day. It's not a bad place to be in terms of having work days though. 8:00 a.m. in BC is 12:30 p.m. in Newfoundland, so I get up and have the morning to do whatever I need to. Yesterday it was getting my laundry done.
Found a laundromat a couple of kms up the road and since everything in my very limited wardrobe was in need of it, I went down there and got it all washed up. There were two other ladies there, as well as Ruth, who was running things. We had good talks while getting our laundry done.
I also met Jerry, who used to ride motocross and was stunned that it was me that was riding and had been doing so for 3 months. I was going to find something to eat while waiting for washers to finish, but ended up listening to Jerry's life story! That was ok though - he was an interesting character and sometimes a person just needs to tell their story. Clearly the bike was exciting for him and brought back a lot of good memories.
By the time I was done visiting with Jerry, my washers were done so I chucked everything in the dryer and went a couple of doors down to where the little food place was. They had these amazing little turkey pasties that were $1.60 each! I would have paid $5.00 for it in Vancouver! Took it back to the laundromat and enjoyed it while waiting for things to finish.
On the way back to the hotel, I got caught up in some construction and it ended up taking almost an hour to get back - good thing I had given myself lots of time. But get back I did, had my scheduled web session and then finished up the day with dinner. Met Boyd in the restaurant and we had a visit over dinner. He and his colleague, Glen, install headstones and countertops and travel all over the maritimes doing it. After dinner, Glen showed up and we had a drink in the lounge. The bartender, Sheldon, make me an Almost Blue Monday cocktail. Dangerous stuff, of course, because it is just the way I like alcohol - doesn't taste like alcohol. But I only had one, because today is a riding day! Time to get cleaned up and go exploring.
