New shoes

 The old bridge in the woods by the ball park, 100 meters south is the new bridge put in this fall.

 It was 4:00 before I got to go for a walk but no one out ahead of me.

I got new snow shoes today so I am all set for the snow.  I was 90 minutes clearing the driveway this morning. We had 20 cm of snow then 10 mm of rain on top, it made for very heavy wet snow.
The temp was around the zero mark all day.

 Yesterday I was to Hunter River for coffee with some hikers, this covered bridge and the water wheel are some of the Landmarks you will see there.

 Today I was to Vessey's in York to get some parts for a lawn mower.
In the morning I was to Charlottetown doing errands and in the shop after lunch working on a lawn mower.
Overcast most of the day with the rain starting at supper time, temperature around 6 with light wind.

Warm day 16

 I went cycled around 2:00 and cycled to Victoria Park, the wind was quite strong, at the park I would guess 40km/h or more.

 I the cycled the trail to Winsloe, I was surprised to see a snake out but it was warm at 16 today.

But it was a little slow so I moved it to the side of the trail so it wouldn't get stepped on.

Poor cycling day

 It was after 1:00 before I started cycling, I cycled to the mall, then the Mount Edward road, then Rte 2 to Winsloe and then back home, about 20 km.

The trail was too wet & muddy for me to cycle on with the Cypress.
We had some sun in the morning, but it was cloudy when I was cycling, actually had started to rain by the time I got home. Temperature is high to 11 as I make this post.

Tree down

I was cycling after lunch, I cycled the road to the Farmers Market  (closed today) and the cycled the trail to Milton and back to the Lower Malpeque road.

 At the Royalty Junction there was a fair sized tree down across the trail.  So I went to work on it with my camp saw.

At the butt end it was all I could cut with my saw, I was wishing I had my chain saw with me.
It was overcast with a 20 km/h breeze with a temperature of 9.

The first photo is the start of the trail in Mount Herbert.

 This rest area is in Mount Albion, the trail in this area is very soft, the fine gravel has not been rolled yet.
I was using the old bike with the bigger tires.
