New Year's Day Report

My New Year's Day triathlon was perfunctory - minor stroke work in the pool at my condo, a little spinning on my trainer and a few steps to count as running. Stroke work featured experimenting with a Christmas present from my sister, the pool toy known as a Tech Toc.

I'll do a report on the Tech Toc when I've used it some more. Overall preliminary impression is favourable.

Had what was labeled New Year's buffet brunch at 1:15pm at the Ritz-Carlton restaurant 7 - for me it was truly lunch. Attendees were me, business partner Gord, his wife Enoka, Gord's son Andy, Enoka's mother (visiting GC for a month), organizing couple Brian and Mindy and another couple they know (Hunter and Helen). Nice company, good food, pleasant surroundings, and my seat faced out to the sunny patio.

Now, back to my regularly scheduled life.

The Ritz sounds quite fabulous. The Jean-Michel Cousteau program for young guests sounds quite wonderful.
