Day Twenty-Seven: Up And Down The River

11 February 2014 (Tuesday)

This entry is light, I did not take notes!

Wake up at 0715. Airport coffee again and then run the generator.

The days are running together now. With little wind we have little to do. Our time is spent working on our computers and

taking occasional strolls around the rock. Even though we are on solid ground it is a bit like being in the doldrums on a sailboat. We need wind!

Tanya and I work on the curling court. I melt some ice with the propane torch but it’s still rough. Later Kathy takes a turn preparing the court. She brings out metal I beam pieces and bricks and does a great job of flattening the course. As the day wears one we decide to wait a day to curl to give the court, or “sheet”, time to freeze.

I beat Tanya in two games of cribbage.

For dinner Kathy makes two types of lasagna, veggie and beans, and meat and onions. Kerry makes chocolate pudding for dessert.

For today’s olympic event we play a card game in place of curling. We play a game that I suggest – up and down the river. Even though no one has played before they all do well. Tanya takes the gold.
