Seven of us braved the rainy weather for about a 5 Km walk down through Brentwood College and back. Actually we started by trying Tim Hortons, which was full. So we whipped over to McDonalds, had a coffee to wait out the rain, then did our walk and finished with a second coffee break at Tim Hortons. Good planning as it turned out nicely.
