The night sky puts on a show

A year ago, Michelle and I were getting excited. The finishing touches were being put on the house, the Mighty P had given its final blessings and Mark, Kim and Rob were on board to come up and help move us south.

We were looking forward to so many things. Watching whales and seeing eagles, beach walks and crashing waves. Sunsets and wind storms. Tide pools and light houses. Good wine and good food, and just flat being together at the coast.

One thing I hadn’t thought about though, was the night sky… Continue reading “The night sky puts on a show”

A great beach weekend

With the new year, like many people, I have been trying, with a lot of help from Michelle, to get the body back in shape after too much good food, too much wine and not near enough miles on the bike in November and December. I am doing both rides on the trainer in the garage, as well was using the treadmill. I am also doing my best to get out each weekend for at least one outside ride.

Remember when this blog was mostly about cycling? When post after post would be about the miles traveled and the things I had seen.

An Unexpected Morning Off

I have been sharing the weather we’ve been having over the last week or so. After a November of dry and sun, Mother Nature is making up for taking it easy on us earlier in the season.

This morning was no exception…..

Listen to the locals

It was a busy weekend for Michelle and I. We played Santa and delivered some presents, did some shopping, and (gasp) went to an orchestra Christmas concert. Yes boys and girls, I got some culture! Even an Oboe solo! Though I was disappointed that they did not play Bob and Doug McKenzie’s the 12 days of Christmas, it was fun.

So after our running around we decided to go out for a late lunch, watch the Seahawks (who LOST) and watch the waves. We MAY have saved a life or two today… Continue reading “Listen to the locals”
