Day 24 Hornby Island

We really slept a long time this morning since it is so quiet and cool here. The View is in the shade for much of the day.

Mavis and Pauline went for a long walk and the rest of us went riding up into the mountain (well, a slight hill). I hadn’'t ridden a horse in 20 years but after a while got used to it once again. The gelding, Cosmos, had a mind of his own much of the time but followed the others so it wasn'’t a problem.

I helped Jim order a new Dell laptop computer. It took about an hour. With one click to complete the transaction, a message from Visa Verification said that it could not go farther and to call. After several calls and explaining the situation, the customer service rep said that a new enhanced Visa card was in the mail and the old card couldn’'t be used. Jim would have to call Dell to complete the transaction. On calling Dell we found we were too late in the day. They closed at 5:00PM Eastern Time which is 2:00PM Pacific Time. Tomorrow he will start over again. 

It is a short walk to the beach.  When the tide is out the beach is a vast field of limestone and stones. There are lots of little creatures in the tide pools. Tomorrow we leave Hornby Island and head for Nanoose on Vancouver Island to visit with Bob and Heather.
