Port Hawkesbury

This former and apparently extremely busy port isn't nearly so busy these days. However, spending three days here has been very handy. It's built on quite a steep a hillside. And the mall and Tim Horton's (think Starbucks) are just over the brow of the hill. A couple of days yomping up and down the hill, and my little leggies are feeling full of vim and vigour and go walkies by themselves, carting the rest of me along with them for the ride. I love it when that happens! All that benefit at no effort!!

And something else pretty good - not just here, but everywhere - is the customary greeting 'Hi, how are you? Good, and you? Good' - takes a couple of seconds, isn't an enquiry into your personal life/problems and makes the world go round just that little bit more smoothly. Oh, and the delightful habit, which I may have mentioned earlier, of calling people 'dear'.
