The Compass Worked

Got lost in the dark this morning.
Decided to ride from Horseshoe Bay to school in False Creek (Vancouver).
Talked to a guy on the ferry the day before he said it was easy.
“Stick right, right?” I asked.
“Yes, easy to find,” he replied.
Well there’s a right, right that I found that pretty soon had me awkwardly wishing I’d figured out how to use the GPS function on my new iPhone.
However, the good old noggin said, after maybe a couple kilometers – STOP!
So I did and rode back and eventually found my way.
That was awkward.
Lessons learned – ensure you look at maps of said roads before your embark on a pre-dawn commute by bicycle.
At least the internal compass worked.
