Pig's Ear Park and Other Adventures

A new/old skill…

After a Cook Strait in a southerly trip back from IOM and a good nights sleep I was ready for another challenge!!!!

Bike Riding!!!!! Had not ridden a bike since the epic trips T and i used to do before we were self employed and had no time!!!! Before the IOm David and I went out briefly, me wobbling like a five year old, BUT I managed it.

So Sunday D and I biked downtown to a jazz concert, that was good and the bike ride was not bad either.
Yesterday up bright and early and biked for an hour, getting better…
Today, going home day, up early and out for another hour, should sleep on the plane…. better still.

So, trip is almost over just the grotty bits to do, fly to LDN from Manchester then home via HK. think i have a couple of hours in HK.
Been a great trip, highlights are numerous, Knights Templar church in Tomar, icebergs in Greenland, pretty scenery in IOM, heat in Cyprus and of course SHOPPING!!!

David and Gill have been great, easing my way thru at every opportunity….

back home to chilliness, a bike waiting to be ridden and hopefully a sale on Pahoia RD, plus of course a new grandchild, sometime late Nov?
