This cat accurately demonstrates how we feel in the city.

37 Celsius is 98.6 Fahrenheit. If we hit the 38C forecast, that’s 100.4F.

Jersey, West Coast

July 15, 2022 1 comment

Our friend Jerry and I did about 16km of hiking today up the west coast of Jersey. The tide here is amazing; it changes between 9. & 12 meters from low to high tide. That’s more than a 3 story building! So, at times the beach is huge and at other times it is very small. I’ve mostly seen low tide so far.

The weather has been unusually perfect here this week; remember it is basically part of England but not really. See https://simple.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jersey

Jersey, Day 2

We checked out Mont Orgueil castle today. It has a very rich history: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mont_Orgueil?wprov=sfti1

I found it fascinating that the tide changes by about 12 meters! Notice the boats in the harbour that are sitting on the sand.

The main town, the countryside, a pub, and some cider. Welcome to the channel island of Jersey.

I was working too much, so I didn’t get to be a tourist except for one brief evening. The old, large building is where my event happened. The others I saw on an evening stroll.

It is rare to find empty streets on a sunny evening during tourist season in Amsterdam.

Electric Vehicle Show in Amsterdam

May 22, 2022 1 comment

There is an EV car show called Fully Charged that happens in a few European cities, and this weekend was Amsterdam’s turn.

There were more car charges than cars, but we liked the electric bicycles the best.
