Dare we think spring has arrived. At least it has quit raining for a day or two. They say no rain till tuesday which is great. Anne has now been able to get three days of riding in between rain showers and now some sunshine is promised. She is averaging 2 to 2.5 hours practice per day. Today we drove to Rondeau Provincial Park and took the dog for a walk there. We were lucky enough to see a small owl in a tree and then a beautiful Oriole. Then I unloaded her bicycle and away she went, down Rose Line to Morpeth, then into Ridgetown and around Ridgetown and back along the Ridge Road to Blenheim. We heard on the news that two students from Western are doing a ride across Canada starting May 9th. I hope the weather is good for them, it seems a bit early. The two cousins from Highgate that left about 2 weeks ago have been getting snow on their journey. We are hoping to avoid snow. Three weeks from tomorrow we should be on the road.
