So far (as I write about Monday on Tuesday to post on Friday), bicycles are forming an important part of the week. On Monday we headed out on the trail fairly soon after they got here and had consumed breakfast, for it was going to be a hot day. Predictions turned out to be correct; it was a scorcher. But it wasn't too bad early on, especially along the shadier parts of the trail.
We ended up about 4 km from home at St James Park, where we lingered for awhile before turning back toward home.
The international cairn was intriguing. Danica read out the countries that contributed to the cairn. The rest of us found some of them.
Then Danica and I went down toward the river where I showed her the dam. She had trouble with the concept but mostly because she had learned to associate dams with beavers. But there were no beavers. Eventually, we communicated intelligently.
But when I turned around, JJ was on top of the cairn. The boy is a climber, but I'm not sure how he scaled that monument.
He can be quite a performer.
Occasionally, the old guy is still moderately useful, as the boy needed a little help getting down.
Meanwhile, Danica indulged in her favourite pastime — taking selfies.
A few more pics from the day.
