On the road to the big smoke

Starting off in the new car is interesting. I am not used to it yet, though it handles well on the highway. Whether is will suit me is up in the air so far – Lynette says I have driven higher powered sports cars all my life, so this will not last. I suspect that she is correct.


Perfect summer weather has finally arrived for our trip. We make our usual stop for lunch in the town park in Tweed, exactly half way. It is a lovely spot right on the lake, with calm water and nice shade trees, though I have noticed that over the years that I have stopped here the lake shows the effects of acid rain chemical changes and now has developed a water vegetation problem clogging the beaches. Al Gore would be happy that I noticed that no doubt.

A nice break and on we go. Perfect driving and little traffic…
