Awoke to the rumble of thunder this morning, not unusual, and it’s been raining ever since, about four hours heavy! Got in a training run before we headed off to Rio Claro, 15 miles cross -country to visit Marie’s widowed half sister-in-law, her daughter and grand-daughter-in- law, Bowgie, Kate and Marissa. Their pet parrot caused much amusement as he vocalised and tried to grip and peck fingers. Most played games and I rested. We drove back and I watched a national Geographic U tube on Amazonia.
Click to enlarge. Mayaro where we are based is lower right on the coast, Rio is on road to the west.
