Life continues to flow along for us on the north Island.  Some geocaching, firewood cutting, some trail building on a friend's property and community suppers every night.  We came into town this morning to do laundry and took the opportunity to post this blog.  I gassed up the car and that was a bit on the pricey side.  Gas went up to $1.369 per liter today so for you Americans, multiply that by 3.785 to get the Canadian dollar cost per US gallon.
It rained in the night but we woke to a nice sunny morning with 10C (50F) temperature.  That's our coolest temperature in a while.   By midmorning, it was showering again.  We've had drizzles several times lately which I'm sure the rest of the province would love to have experienced with all the fires that are burning.
