Rain at last

When it rains it pours finally got some. The farm team at CSA got  relief as the plants are slowly growing and it looks more hopeful that we’ll have a good season.  Anyway the sunflowers were extraordinary this week. I managed to find one that was the largest.  So I’m watching the Olympics and tripping on the color schemes from the most bizarre I’ve ever seen in the Olympics games. I’m missing out on Bob Costas this year.  NBC is blocked here but I do get Eurosports and Canadian sports channel.The  HD stream is quite beautifully coming across here on my fiber optics connection. And I’ve been cycling along the lake  just about every morning there’s really nice trail that discovered it’s about 15 miles so I sometimes do twice.

Algonquin Provincial Park

Well I didn’t go to Lake Superior. So am looking onward to go to Algonquin Provincial Park. There’s a bus that goes there from Toronto so that makes transportation a lot easier. My friend Jen might want to go with me when she returns from the Lake Superior trip. It’s so convenient to have a camping supply store directly across the street to get supplies. Anyway I’m looking forward to getting out of Toronto for a little bit of the wilderness and making some new work.

Sorry I haven’t written in a while. I’ve been preoccupied and trying to stay cool during this incredible heatwave that’s been hitting Toronto and kayaking on the lake in preparation for a trip to Vert Island Ontario near Thunderbay. The Island is on Lake superior is supposed to be quite beautiful. Today we’re kayaking to the 13 island group directly across from Rogers Center for some rescue training with Jen and Lisa to the people that I’ll be camping with. Looks like another beautiful day here! Meanwhile am doing the BBQ thing here.
