Port Whitby, Day 2

To go or not to go was the question that hung over us all morning.  The temperatures dropped into the 40's and the forecast predicted rain and thunder showers all day and into the evening. After much deliberation and discussions of past decisions to "go" that turned out to be stupid decisions, we decided to stay.  While the forecast for today remains "doom and gloom" it barely rained this morning and just begun to rain as we slide into the afternoon.  With 20/20 hindsight, we should have cycled today.  We could have gotten to our next destination without getting drowned in cold rain.  But then, we are older and smarter...

Our motel is very nice and we have a large room, however, there is nothing nearby.  Joe is working on revising our route maps and Jeff is getting near the end of his thick novel.  It is going to be a long day.  Luckily, we can have our dinner delivered.  Hopefully, tomorrow's cycling will be interesting and our blog worth reading.

  1. We are all very jealous of your mid-50-degree weather - it is very hot and very humid at home.
    Having said that, the aviation forecast for Toronto for today has overcast skies, but no precipitation. Dreary and cool, but relatively dry. The downside ... 10 - 15 mph headwinds in your direction of travel. Over the next few days the weather should improve as the low pressure area (and an upper-level trough) move slowly to the east, and a weak high pressure area moves over the area from the west. I'd expect some possible morning fog, but all in all improving conditions over the next 2 - 3 days.
    Thanks for the blog and sharing your adventures!
