Appointments, Errands and A Photo Expedition

Today was a lot more humid with temperatures of 27C (83F), some cloud, some sun, rain, thunder, the whole gamut!

Gordon finally got through to Social Security this morning and they claim they tried to call and couldn't get through. What's with that? They're calling from the U.S. to a U.S. cell phone. Anyway he made an appointment to go down to Ogdensburg next week and see them in person. Hopefully it will be easier that way. They can get copies of what they need, in person.

I had another chiropractor appointment this afternoon. While we were out we got fuel and ran a few errands and also went to Victoria Island. Neither of us had been there before. They have aboriginal festivities there during the summer and there were lots of natives camping there in tents. They have a fenced off area that they charge to get in but mostly we wanted to just get some photos of the downtown skyline. There were too many trees to get much but I did get this photo of the downtown area with skies starting to look thunderous!

This old building is on Victoria Island. We think it was once part of a local paper mill.

We also stopped at Kitchissippi Lookout where Westboro Beach is. Here is a photo of the cafe that overlooks the beach.

After all that, we came home and had a nap! Just after we got home we had a lot of rain and thunder.

  1. Not come everyone gets to take naps and I don't? I guess it is because I am at work. Oh well carry on without me. It wont be long I will be there.
