Old Friends

One of my roommates from university lives here in Victoria. So I telephoned her, and arranged for Ed and I to spend today with her and her family (Thea, Ian and their daughter Elizabeth). When we arrived at their home, bicycles were being wheeled into the driveway — it appeared we were going bicycling with them and two of Elizabeth’s friends. The city of Victoria is a great place to bicycle as there are bike paths and lanes all over the city. We headed out to one of their favorite places — a market complete with gift shops and mini-golf. Along the way we saw three wild deer — they weren’t impressed by the bikes. The 3 girls, Ian and Ed played a rousing game of mini-golf where blowing on your ball to get a whole in one was allowed. Thea and I had a nice time wandering around the shops. On the ride back I seemed to have a lot of trouble keeping up with everyone else. We stopped at one place, and Thea said she thought the rear tire might be low on pressure, and Elizabeth said she thought the front tire looked low. Sure enough the front tire was almost flat and the rear tire also needed air — luckily Ian had a bicycle pump with him. Boy, was it a lot easier to ride with air in your tires! Back at Thea’s house, the girls headed out back to the trampoline, it would be nice to have that much energy. Later the five of us went out for Thai food .... mmm good. After dinner, Ian gave us a quick tour of the city.
