After a rather untypical week of rain and wind (for this time of year), the rain left us and we are enjoying sunny and warm weather. All our guests have left us too, and we are using the week alone to set up for winter, do some hiking, and plan visiting some of our friends who live on the island.
We have arrived in Mallorca, Jessica and her family came, my parents and Sheila’s mother. It rains only on about 50 days a year here, but after two sunny days we are hitting a few of those days. The kids (and adults) nevertheless enjoy the warm weather and ocean. We also have access to a pool, great to sit at, have a drink and look at our WhatsApp messages.
I came up to Simon Fraser University today to give a guest lecture, beautiful day to be back at my old university. It has grown quite a bit, but the views on a sunny day were still great. Sheila and I met some friends from our student days for dinner on the hill afterwards, and we all enjoyed the fantastic sunset and catching up.
