Cannamore

July 19, 2018. 25x50 Day 7, 53km. Did some coding this morning, fixing the last of the gRSShopper issues in its new home (almost done now). Then took a quick 53km ride to Cannamore (which is actually an apple orchard and four houses). Beautiful day, not so hot. https://flic.kr/p/KBV8ma

White Back Yard

Image
July 18, 2018. This is what our back yard looks like. I know we're supposed to mow and have a nice green lawn, but the grass is all brown in the drought anyways and I'm glad we kept the wildflowers. I was up early to do a bit more office work, but I slept really badly and didn't do a thing all day except listen to music and do some coding (which always makes me feel better). https://flic.kr/p/28d5chJ

City of the Future

Image
July 17, 2018. I went into the office today, got caught up on email, watered the plants, completed a proposal evaluation, parked too close to some guy parked in the e-car parking spot, completed a longish survey (that closed last week)... then in the evening, I went to an Ottawa Graph meetup to learn more about Merkle DAGs (which I did, though I was totally at home with the discussion, bonus). This is a display in Ottawa City Hall, where I parked (no e-car spots, sadly - there's one occupied spot outside, that's it). https://flic.kr/p/MaE5Js

Monarch

Image
July 16, 2018. I took a break from biking in order to run errands and to help gRSShopper adapt to the new environment (including turning on caching to relieve Reclaim's poor CPUs). Meanwhile this monarch butterfly ran some errands of its own in our back yard. https://flic.kr/p/298NZBo

St-Bernatrdin

Image
July 15, 2018. Watched the World Cup game then went out for what should have been a short ride but ended up being the longest ride of the year. It was warm, conditions were perfect, and I also biked at the best pace of the year, our to St-Bernardin and back, some 74 kilometers. https://flic.kr/p/27NeUfc

Tree Frog

Image
July 14, 2018. Another hot and humid day, not exactly ideal weather for a frog, but this tree frog seemed comfortable nestled in the buckthorn. I went out for a bike ride today, just a quick 50 km. https://flic.kr/p/Ku7WhF

Mont Tremblant

Image
July 13, 2018. For our last day at Mont Tremblant we took the gondola to the top of the mountain and hiked the 360 trail. The day was a bit hazy instead of the brilliant blue skies we've been having, but it was still very warm, even at the summit. https://flic.kr/p/297xbov
