About 2 months ago a competition email was sent around Golder, this is it: Drew (A work colleague) came to me and asked if i’d be interested in taking part, well bearing in mind that the final outcome was going to consist of destruction, I was in! Drew went and bought a couple of packets of Popsicle sticks, for a dollar each from a dollar store, we started staying late after work and making a mess in one of the free cubicles here in the office. I traveled to Mississauga for a week during our build, nothing stopped, I just made a mess in the Golder house there instead! Pictures We worked for about 20 hours each we thing on this project. during this time we made a hell of a mess, which even is still at work.. Pictures – To Be Added At work we have what is called […]
I had to take some videos to prove that I didn’t ‘photoshop’ the pictures. So, the first video (in chronological order of cause) is taken on the boat travelling to the Island on the Friday at about 4.20pm. Then I took a video of the street outside the place that we stayed, Park Place Suites. On the Saturday morning we went for a walk past the harbour, this is the calm mirror like water. We then picked up the bike, this is about our second stop. So only about a half mile into our journey. So still, and then a mile on we took this one. And lastly Hannah took a video of us going over the bridge to Michigan And that is all folks! There are some panoramic pictures to make up, so they’ll go up here soon.
The ferry ride back to the mainland was calm and relaxed, I don’t think that they do anything in a rush. We now headed South (away from home) towards the third longest bridge in total suspension in the world. We paid our $4 toll and drive at 45mph (which honestly is the speed limit on the bridge) for about 11 minutes before we reached the far side. Thus 45 divided by 11 is 5.6, 5.6 into 60 goes about 8 times, so the bridge is about 8 miles long. Pretty far eh? We then turned off and tried to find a spot to turn around to head back the other way for home. We found a main street which looked very touristy, but it had a few shops that were open and one particular place was selling fudge, which I had been told was something that we should try. We […]
We went on our second honey moon to Mackinac Island over the long weekend, not as long as a UK Easter weekend, only 3 days, they only get the Friday off here. We drove the 392km to St. Ignace in Michigan USA, yup that’s right, we have now been to the United States of America. Tick. Getting through customs was interesting, we got pulled over, as most were simply let through, we had to go into the building and fill in a form so that we could get a visa waver, which is similar to a visa in the fact that you have to pay for it! Only $6 though. This all took in the region of an hour. Then we were on our way again, another hour or so south, now travelling at 70mph though rather than the 110kph that we’d been doing for the past 3 hours or […]
Well Hannah and I have been just getting on with life I guess, so we’ve not been up to too much. I was ill, then the weather got hot, a high of +24, then a week later a low of -17 I think. The local lake is melting rapidly, even though the ice was approximately 3′ think I would imagine. We went to see Onaping falls the other weekend, also there is a picture of me on Bruce’s ‘four wheeler’ with plow, this was back in Febauray I think. Pictures
