|Tracy and Ridley|
Seb and Tasha have a dog (Ridley) and we enjoyed taking him for walks. Anyway, we spent a day in Vicoria (see picture of Tracy in Vicoria), and I got the bike sorted out with an oil change and a fitted a bolt back onto the pannier rack that had fallen off somewhere in Canada. Nothing too technical or demanding and the bike is running like a dream - long may this continue.

We got up at 8 a.m. (it was still raining) and packed up a sodden tent. The whole point of going to the west coast was to walk around the coastal trails. Rainforest no less! There was no point us not doing this so we spent the day on the coast (in the rain) walking around the forest trails. It was good fun and interesting but, you guessed it, wet. I learned that this area of Vancouver Island gets 3 metres of rain a year - I can believe it. We left the area at 3 p.m. (it was still raining) and headed inland. I'm typing this in a Motel surrounded by drying clothes. Oh the joys of motorbike travel. I'll add some photos when the camera dries out.
P.S. Tracy IS still talking to me but only just...
