Monday 3 February 2014 – Beside the Rideau River

0304rideau4

Today was a lovely ‘blue sky’ effort. No skiing, sadly, so my new skis have to wait until tomorrow to be christened. I suppose the day’s rest will help to re-acclimatise those muscles that can still be felt from the previous two days.

The day was dominated by my need for attention to a dental problem – the crown that was fitted to the tooth that broke during our last trip three weeks ago fell out last night. It was only fitted on Thursday, but my dentist did try so hard to sort it out by the time we left, and it was clear to me on Thursday that the laboratory had provided her with an item that could have fitted better. It’s re-fixed now, at considerable cost that may or may not be recoverable. C’est la vie!

Before the dental visit, Sue, Helen and I enjoyed a short walk from the house beside the Rideau River, which flows into the Ottawa River beside which Ken and Helen used to live.

It was sunny and warm for our delightful stroll.

A visit to Joan followed the ‘ouch’ visit (wallet, not mouth) and the day was more or less gone by then, apart from the usual ‘beach holiday’ activities that form an integral part of our visits to Ottawa at this time of year.

Great fun!
