A little behind last week, over on Mayne Island, with lots of visitors and lots of gourmet eating. “What we do well”, said one guest. managed to persuade some guests that riding the ride on mower could be fun, so managed most of the mowing. The grass was looooong. Mixed weather, some cloudy periods, some showers. Toward end of week 4, brightened, and much warmer, in time for dragon Boat races in false Creek, and Jazz festival downtown. So lots of seawall walking this week, and a few more hills per instructions from cardio.
