One of the few times I’ve stayed somewhere else on . Up on Eagle Cliff, looking out to Strait of Georgia and across to UBC. Wind and whitecaps.

I should log my epic sandwich from yesterday’s lunch. Sourdough from Tall Shadow breads, polish mayo, pickle slice, Roma tomato, havarti, and salami.

Spicy udon bowl for lunch today. Onions, ginger, garlic, some diced red peppers & carrots I had laying around. Diced Roma tomatoes. Miso. Soy Sauce. Samba Oelek. Rice vinegar.

Ride out to our usual bench at Burnaby Lake was pretty cold. Got to get gloves and other gear sorted to keep .

The new Rad Mini in white has slightly smaller wheels, and of course no extended rear rack.

Pulled out some old achiote and made a turkey thigh stew plus did a trial run of savoury waffles I’m going to serve tomorrow.
