Back in Mallorca

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!



Von London sind wir für ein paar Tage nach Siegelbach gekommen. Das Wetter war erst sehr kalt und naß, aber gestern war es trocken und wir haben die Gelegenheit für einen Waldspaziergang genutzt. Die Blätterfärbung ist sehr schön und wir genießen den Spätherbst.

London on a sunny day

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.

Simon Fraser University

I took a trip up Burnaby Mountain today and visited my old university, Simon Fraser, on top of the hill. The weather is great and it was nice to spend some time there. I taught a guest seminar for graduate students in the Faculty of Science and interacting with young, smart people is always fun.

Nice weather

We have enjoyed wonderful fall weather this week with warm and sunny days. Our time is taken up by meeting friends and family, and I played a bit of golf and had a few biotech meetings. Tonight the sunset was so spectacular that we went to English Bay to properly enjoy it.

Fall in Vancouver

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.
