Summer 2014

OK. Let's combine what should have been 12 updates into one. That seems the only reasonable thing to do… since I seem completely incapable of updating this dang blog on a regular basis.

This summer I decided that, after buying new living room furniture in the spring, I would forego any sort of vacation-vacation and stay in and around home.  So I decided to take two things that I love… one: riding the train and two: going for walks and work them in together. So, I decided that I would go to different train stations and walk from, to, or around.

So i went east. i went west. I went north. And i went south. First I went to Pickering.

 Oh. I see a reactor.

I went to the Toronto Island a couple of times. Yes. I know. Not a train ride. But. Still. This is a great picture and I wanted to post it.

I went to Whitby.

I even went to Niagara Falls.

I barely rode my bicycle at all this summer. I went for walks. Lots of walks. Lots and lots of walks. So many that in August I walked a total of 237.9 kms.

I may have caused damage to my knee.

I had to see a chiropodist.

My feet are sore.

Very sore.
