There are many reasons we love living here. Fresh air, waves, and less traffic are just a few.
While driving home from this morning from the weekly grocery shopping trip, I was reminded of another reason and inspired to make a post. Continue reading “Nature Around Us”
Wow, I have NOT been a good blogger. I just saw it has been almost a month since the last post. Remember when I posted every day?
Well, a lot has gone on, including a week-long vacation since the last post. I will see about getting things caught up. However, one of the biggest things that occurred was Michelle and I had our 1st Beachaversary. Yep, March 23rd, 2019 marks the one year mark that we moved into our new house at the coast.
Sadly, on the actual Beachaversary, I was sick, so Michelle and I couldn’t go out to celebrate. We will soon though!
I started thinking on my ride this weekend, I have seen a LOT of things on the bike since I got here, So here we go, a year of riding at the coast. Continue reading “A year of cycling at the coast”
I know a lot of people who truly are NOT fans of winter! There is cold, there is snow and a whole lotta dark. Of the three, the only part I ever used to get tired of was the dark. In December and January, I would leave in the dark for work, and there were days I would leave work and it was dark again already.
Here at the coast, and working from home, this is NOT an issue. I always get home before dark. Plus, this winter has not been normal! Most of January looked like this
With lots of blue sky and sunshine, but it was still winter…. Continue reading “Spring is coming!”
Ever heard the old saying, “There is no such thing as a free lunch?”
People usually say it when someone talks about getting something for free. As in, “You know junior, there is no such thing as a free lunch! Someone, somewhere is paying for that! you just don’t know it!!”
Well ladies and gents, I had an amazing last few days, and sure as hell, all the fun stuff was free! It started me thinking, a lot of the coolest things to do at the ocean really are free! … Continue reading “Free fun!!”
Ladies and gents I am getting spoiled! The weather has been nothing but amazing this entire month. (Funny, the one real rain we had, Michelle and I were in Portland at the zoo!) Aside from those days, October has looked like this
Blue sky, sunshine and warm… Continue reading “But that is not what the fuzzy bear caterpillars tell me”
Ladies and gents, this week has been a butt kicker at work. Things that seem simple at first glance have gone into a tail spin as I’ve worked on them. It does make the day go fast, but this week I honestly coulda worked extra hours each night. Last night, Michelle kicked me out on a ride instead… Continue reading “I’m a helper!”
I woke up a couple of days ago, and noticed it was February. I have NO idea where the hell January went so quickly. It seems like just yesterday it was New Years. Work and weather combined to make this one helluva busy month, It was also very stingy on miles. I ended ups with only 235 for January. Over 100 less than the year before.
I can tell I am going to have a challenge this year: To not beat myself for not making the same miles from last year. Last year was a fluke and a record. I will get plenty of miles this year, but it doesn’t need to be as much as last year.
That being said, I wanted to kick off February well… Continue reading “A mid winter’s ride”
