Thursday was another brutally hot day but I was tired of being cooped up, first in our room at the school and now back home, so when Hal bribed me with the chance of some letterboxing if I would act as navigator while he dropped off resumes, I agreed.
The job hunting went fairly well. It is amazing how many nice people are out there, with encouragement and good advice. We are really hopefully that Hal will find a position soon because up to now we've had no problem lining up casual jobs to keep us afloat. The casual jobs are starting to dry up and its making things a little tough and a little scary. But we will press forward.
The last stops were at Schneiders and Mackinnons in Guelph . . . an Ontario letterboxing mecca . . .
First find was Deer Crossing. I always have my camera close at hand . . . ALWAYS . . . except today . . . grrrrrrrrr . . . and two deer came right to the edge of the wooded area to have a visit with us. We talked to them and the really seemed to be listening. It was awesome . . . and no camera . . .
Just a little further up the path we found Rudolph's Letterbox.
Both stamps were simply adorable. But the heat and humidity were awful and just sapping all the strength out of me; making it hard to breath. I barely made the short hike back to the van. A few minutes in the van with the a/c on full blast and I was fine again. Thursday was just a crazy hot day.
Hal and I agreed it would be crazy to try and continue, so we headed for the 401 and home.
Do you remember the story of Cailyn and I in the woods in the dark using the flashes of our cameras to try and find 401 Westbound - Cambridge: Dawn of the Commute? Well we just couldn't drive by the location without trying again. And of course with daylight it was a fairly easy find . . . LOL . . .
