Lyrics: nope

Back from a very relaxing time on the island of Terceira (Azores).  Managed one 3.5 km run before I decided island life was not conducive to running (no pavements and too many scary dogs).  Did a 3 hour hike though, that counts for something right?

Ale that does not sound nice :S
Sleep tight Dibs
News Wabo?

Have a good evening all

What: managed about 20 km in the end, very slowly as had backpack and kept stopping for photos.
Why; sightseeing, best way to do it!
Last hard: some of those hills (actually, last hard was trying to work out how to modestly put on a bikini for a dip when I'd forgotten a towel!  I managed, but with some interesting techniques!).
Lyrics: nope

Ale the sea was icy cold!  Reckon maybe it hit 17 C!

WP sounds sore, enjoy your week away, where are you off to?

RFJ enjoy SEAL.

OH hope it went well today.
Dustin sounds sensible

Have a great day all, I'm off to the airport, next stop, Terceira.
