June is usually a rainy month, but not this year. I think we had rain only one time and that was when I went on a Bike Pub Crawl (Bub Crawl from now on) which will definitely toughen you up. As well in the month I got to know my backyard a little better caring for my garden, refurbishing items and befriending the squirrels. Of course some sailing too - Dry and windy remember.
|Get ready for a COOL SUMMER!!! Oh Hugo.|
Let's start with a funny sign...
|Ladies, the writing is on the glass!|
|The whole picture hides the truth?|
Tommy dropped off this bench and said "Yours if you want it." So I cleaned it up and sold it for $120.

Took a walk to a diagnostics clinic for a few x-rays. Lots of interesting things on the way that day.
|Memories! My first CAR!|

|Not just about caring for health, there's money to be made|
in all the extras...

Gardening, yard work and restoration work around the house. Ah and why not a Garage Sale too.
Striving to live healthier than I ever had I stopped eating sugar, bread and sold my microwave. And I even buy organic products now, which taste better. And what better way to eat organic than growing your own garden.
Dirty Dozen (Super high in chemicals Food) - Apples, peaches, spinach, kale, green beans, potatoes, tomatoes, cucumbers, celery, grapes, strawberries, blueberries, nectarines, peppers.
Clean Fifteen (No need to buy organic Food) - Yams, onions, avocado, pineapple, mango, sweet corn, sweet peas, egg plant, cauliflower, asparagus, kiwi, cabbage, watermelons, grapefruits, honeydew

Squirrel Race around a tree, Hilarious!
Bub Crawl (the first of many!). Having ridden a bike 4 times in the last twenty years it seemed only perfect to ride 30 km in the pouring cold rain while drinking tonnes of beer at 6 different local breweries. Toolshed, Common Crown, High Line Brewing, Cold Garden (best of the batch!), Millstreet, Trolley 5. Missed Village (next time!).
All and all a fantastic experience and for sure not the last one!!!
Donation Bike makes a new bad ass Bike!
