We flew to Mallorca today and moved back into our usual winter quarters. The island is still very busy and the weather today was very windy with rain showers, about 17 degrees. Good enough to go for a walk on the beach and the forecast for next week is sunshine. We look forward to that!
After a lively few days in Manchester, we took the train to London today and are visiting Andrea for the weekend. She was still at work this afternoon and I took the opportunity in sunny weather to walk around Tooting Common. A nice pub close by, The Bedford, was unfortunately closed for renovations, but we are going out for dinner tonight.
The boat is packed up for the winter and we are in Vancouver. Sheila is busy with a bathroom renovation, I am preparing a guest lecture, and we both are enjoying spending time with friends. The weather has been cold and wet, but today the sun came out in the morning and it is supposed to stay nice for a few days. Stanley Park has a definite fall feeling to it though.
