At Opposite Extremes

In Colorado the roads can get rather busy.I had left the comforts of Lucy & Stevens home in Placerville with a belly full and a great night sleep! It was good after a couple of fairly chilly nights out there. They had shown me picture albums of their vacations, my reaction was; “WOW! Where is THAT!?”…

Mum & Dad visit Canada

The weather has been utterly glorious for about two months now! so guess what I did… ABSOLUTELY NOTHING. Ok, not completely true, but I have left my bicycle in Prince Rupert to have a vacation with mum and dad. It seems a little funny to have ridden through snow, wind and rain while now, in…
