Me and the world’s tallest totem pole

leave a comment »

The Younger Daughter took this photo in Beacon Hill Park. The totem pole is 127 feet 7 inches tall (non-metric because it was erected in the 1950s.) We also walked to the top of Beacon Hill to look out to the gray haze. Then to Murchie’s for lunch and various packets of tea. (She bought a lot of samples to try and will order larger amounts of those she likes.) We stopped in Munro Bookstore next door after lunch, and then home. Tonight: Q at the Empress for dinner.

Edwin Jagger synthetic, Natural Bay Rum, Baby Smooth, and Dominica Bay Rum

I did not do my usual vigorous shake of the synthetic brush. Since Meißner Tremonia shaving soaps contain clay, I figured a little extra water would not be out of order, and indeed I loaded the brush easily with no need for any adding of water.

Natural Bay Rum smells quite good to me, and the Baby Smooth delivered its usual excellent shave. A splash of Dominica Bay Rum finished the job, and the air quality today is quite good: the shifting winds have carried the forest-fire smoke away from us.
