When I woke up this morning, I headed into to town to see how full it was of people. Turned out, it was packed by the time got there. So I decided that going back to see the MayDay Parade was out of the question. Sadly, Fort Langley has become a nightmare for parking, so I opted to stay at home instead. Once at home, I focused on cleaning and getting ready for the new week. I did sat on my patio for a while, reading, then taking my camera out to capture these silky ribbon looking clouds, which had moving waves that made them ripple in real time. Then back to more cleaning.
My road was quiet today. Only a couple of cars travelled up, then back, along the dead street. It was what laid beyond that made me stay at home. When I was going down River Road, or 88 Avenue, there were about fifty cyclists, all done up in racing spandex. And beyond that, was Fort Langley parade. So, for my evening drive, I headed in the opposite direction–Abbotsford. Even that drive was full of people parked at every park and stop along the road. So I only stopped for a few photos, then off I went back home.
I feel rested, but could use some more time off. Tomorrow I go back to work, into the pit. I can only imagine how hot it will be in there tomorrow. Not to mention how grumpy some of my co-workers get when it is too hot inside. Because of security, all doors must be shut, and fresh air is hard to come by while on the floor. Do I look forward to that—not!
Well, at least the good weather will not outnumber the bad days. I hope this year, summer is awesome–but not too hot.
Happy Victori Day!
