June 23

June 24th, 2007

Everyone has been telling me I need to write a book when I’m all done this crazy adventure. I’m not too sure what I’d call it, though. Any suggestions?


Well, unfortunately today’s entry isn’t very book-worthy. It was my day off so I spent all day with my baby niece and also catching up on website stuff and e-mails.


In the late afternoon, my buddy, Jeff, and girlfriend, Laura, came over and picked me up to take me to the Beaches. The plan was to meet up with a bunch of friends before heading back to Eugene’s house for a barbecue. I know it was a beautiful summer afternoon, but the number of cars in the parking lot by the beach was mind-boggling. You’re probably thinking “There’s only X number of parking spots, so it can only be that busy”. But that wasn’t the case. There were cars up on curbs, at the ends of each lane, on the grass, and even in the trailer parking. If you were lucky enough to see someone walking towards their car, you’d be in a race with 40 other cars trying to follow them. We circled around for the better part of 45 minutes before finally scoring a space. Once we got to the beach, it was nice to kick back and play a bit of volleyball in the sand (I had to be careful not to roll my ankles). We all headed back to Eugene’s place for some food and beverages as the evening approached. We mingled and reminisced about times gone by. Eugene and Amanda provided a great spread of food and were fantastic hosts.


It was an entertaining evening to say the least. It was great to be back with my peers in a more typical summer setting. As much as I’m enjoying my journey, it’s always nice to sample a taste of regularity. That being said, I’m looking forward to hitting the road tomorrow and heading towards Niagara.
