Train Ride

20110812-112106.jpgToday I took my dad to get his follow up visit with the doctor to get blood – his lab work looked good, and for the doctor to see how he was tolerating his chemo medication.

Gary and I had taken the rest of the day off to hang out afterwards. Most of the things I wanted to do ended at 3pm, so we wouldn’t have had time to get there today, but we were able to find something to do.

We decided to take a train ride to a neighbouring town for a 20 minute train ride, dinner for a couple of hours, an then a 20 minute train ride back – mostly for the train ride experience.

What was supposed to be a simple 20110812-112118.jpgitinerary turned out to be a 2.5 hour late train back home, but the weather was nice and dinner was yummy. Apparently the train has to go slower when there is a flash flood warning, which was in the first part of their route.
