Wednesday 3rd June 2015…..sports and then a hike and then sports!!!!!!

For a moment there this morning I thought I was back in San Miguel…..having breakfast and watching live tennis from France…

Watched an end of an era as Nadal was demolished by Novak…and Steve my tennis buddy in SMA I think you owe me a few pesos on a little bet we had a few weeks ago!!!!

I then packed up and away I went about 8 miles out of town to this trail head….

With the altitude and the steepness this was a tough slog but the views made it all worth while…

I was beginning to wonder if I would ever find the cabin when over the next ridge!!!!

Well I made it but again I say this was a very tough go….

inside the cabin there were blankets and tools…

I pulled up a bench and sat in the doorway and had lunch with this view!!

I wanted to take the other loop back down but there was a lot of snow and I tried but was up to my knees in snow and the snow was hiding the trail so I did a smart thing and returned on the same route I took to come up…

It was on the way down that I realized how difficult the climb was….I arrived back at the car just over 4 hours later it was a lovely tough hike…..

So back home the first thing was a soak in the bath and then dinner and then finished the evening the way it had started…sports on TV this time the first game of the Stanley cup final….

So I have so enjoyed my stay here many thanks Deb for letting me stay in your lovely condo…tomorrow is a drive through what I am told is spectacular scenery and I have a place booked tomorrow evening in McCall which is on a lake….

Thanks to Inga for sending this to me…

A blonde gets a job as a physical education teacher of 16 year olds.
She notices a boy at the end of the field standing
alone,

while all the other kids are running around having fun kicking a ball.

She takes pity on him and decides to speak to him.
'You ok?' she says.
'Yes.' he says.
'You can go and play with the other kids you know'
she says.
'It's best I stay here.' he says.
'Why's that sweetie?' says the blonde.
The boy looks at her incredulously and says,

Because I'm the goalie!’
