Place 70 – Day 4: Victoria,BC – A Dash of Snow

We, again, failed to wake at a decent time, but it was much colder this morning along with high winds, making it hard to get out of bed.

We had some breakfast, got ready, wrapped up warm and braced the cold. The forecast said it was 2°C but feels like -4°C, so nice and chilly.

We checked some shops for jeans for the both of us, but we were unable to find any we liked. We got tired of looking at shops so headed for Starbucks for a coffee.

Curtis got a cappucino and Kim got a mocha, but both were not great. That being said, we did some research and some people watching for a while before heading out for a bit more of a walk.

We found a subway and grabbed one as a snack, and to get out of the cold!

We walked back to the apartment and got ready as some family friends of Kim’s, Mark & Jill, were picking us up for dinner at their house!

Just before we were picked up, it started to snow a bit, which, once we got picked up, got a lot heavier and started laying.

We got to their house and sat and chatted in the kitchen whilst they created a delicious roast pork dinner with mashed potato, green beans & honey parsnips.

We sat and chatted for hours about all kinds of things and then we headed back home around 22:15, getting back at 22:30.

When we got back, the temperature was -4°C but feels like -11°C! Tomorrow is meant to be cold, too.

This time last year!

Place 49 – Day 299: Auckland – Baked Potatoes!

Curtis’ Day;

Curtis got to work incredibly early and spent half the morning doing admin.

14 laptops arrived which Curtis then had to setup and configure, as well as install some more hardware inside. This took up all of the morning!

Curtis finished lunch and then had a remote session to complete. He luckily managed to complete that as he was having trouble connecting last week.

Most of the afternoon we then taken up by a possible virus on a server which Curtis then had to look into and resolve.

Both of us;

Once we were both home, we just had to go for a walk as the weather was incredible! We walked up to the shop to buy some baked beans for dinner.

For such a long time, Kim has wanted a baked potato for dinner, and we finally found a big enough potato to do so! Curtis got a ‘kumara’ (Sweet potato) for his.

We got back from our walk and had a baked potato with cheese and beans.

We then watched the first episode of the new Apprentice series and a few YouTube videos before going to sleep.

This time last year!

Poroporoaki!
