The big highlight of Picton was due in part to Mike and his hair. Considering Molly and I are rated ten in everything we do he decided that he would trust us to dread his hair. And we did just that. It took two days but Molly and I have officially mastered the art of dreading hair and are thinking about persuing that as a career when we return home. Or maybe this will just be one of the activites we leave with the van. It's only appropriate to dread hair when you live in a van, I suppose.
And don't worry...Molly and I still have run-your-fingers-through-it hair. Well only on days that we shower.
It'll make you happy to know that we're back to our old habits. Molly and I are again showering in parking lots via the solar shower and cooking dinner on the wok in parks. And we look the part too. Both nights we went to a cafe for coffee and both nights we were given free food. Night one a fantastic pate sandwhich and the second night muffins. What can I say, that quickly became our favortie cafe.
We enjoyed Picton but decided to leave when we overstayed our welcome. Last night was the first time in the month and a half we've been traveling that someone has knocked on our van and asked us to park it somewhere else to sleep. We had to move to a parking lot near the harbor in which the noise from the incoming trains and ferry boats kept us awake all night.
Time to move on. Nelson here we come!
