Holy crap it's hot!!! I wish we could get this weather in Ontario..... where at least we could be near a lake!
Day 2 of the family reunion dawned with me taking 3 of the NZ group from their hotel over to the 2400 Court motel, where most of the rest of the group is staying.
We had arranged to meet with the others at about 11:30 and then planned to show them around town. Naturally, when we arrived, we found out that they were all gone. The Aussie was supposed to have checked out of her room by noon but hadn't. Meanwhile, the desk clerk assigned that same room to the newly arrived NZ crew. This would have meant 3 large adults and one small child sharing a double bed in a non-air-conditioned room in the middle of a heat wave. What really amazed me is that the Polynesians were all okay with that!
Luckily, a second room was found and the motel agreed to hold the other room until the missing Aussie was found.
We waited for over 3 hours for them to return and finally gave up and went home. We learned that they finally showed up around 6 pm. They had taken a bus into town, got lost, wound up in Stanley Park, hopped onto another bus, wound up in Chinatown and eventually made their way home.
Sigh..... did I mention that I need valium?
