Saturday 1 February 2014 - Mooney's Bay

Another month, another place (aka the Terry Fox Athletic Facilities).

Here (above) Sue warms up with Helen after yesterday's uneventful journey across a large pond.

It's two years since we last visited, and in that time Ken and Helen have moved from the Ottawa River district to the Rideau River district. We are installed in their lovely new house and enjoyed a short ski this morning before the snow started.

Then a trip to Fresh Air Experience resulted in my battered old skis and worn out boots being replaced. It'll be interesting, maybe even a revelation, to have skis on which the edges haven't been destroyed. 

The rest of the day seems to have been spent sorting out various wi-fi connections for our ever more extensive collection of gadgets.
