Yesterday morning I was taking a quick ride to Newport. Michelle was getting her hair done, and I was riding south to meet her. We were going to drive back together and stop at the grocery store. It was a gorgeous day to ride! Blue sky, no wind and the whales were out
I was cruising along when realized that Saturday was the first day of September! And as the title says, I had ridden less than 200 miles during the month of August…. Continue reading “Under 200 miles???”
Many of my posts begin with the fact that I am learning new stuff about where we now live all the time. This one is no exception. This time it’s about the weather.
Michelle and I have a running joke that the weatherman and weather apps flat have no idea what our weather is going to do. We look outside on a day its supposed to rain, and its sun. A day that is supposed to be calmand the trees are bending over. We just look at each other and laugh and say, “They don’t know!”
This week the story has been fog… Continue reading “Taking advice from a crazy guy on a bike”
Somethings don’t change regardless of where you live.
Wherever you are, there are errands to run, chores to do, and bathrooms to clean. Ocean house or not, there are just things to have to get done.
Another commonality is the after work bike ride.
On morning rides, I have ALL day. I can go as far as I want and no worries. After work rides? I have to factor in sundown. I am not afraid of riding at night, but I prefer not to, especially when I have to work the next day. This tends to mean the evening rides follow the same routes each time.
I have a 20 and a 40 mile route, and it depends on when I get off work, the winds and how the legs are feeling, as to which one I choose.
I am learning, though, that one never knows what will happen on a ride here on the coast… Continue reading “OK, THAT was cool!”
Can you believe we have been at the ocean for over a month?!?! We moved down here March 23rd and here it is May! We still love it. I try to get to the beach at least twice a week, and it has not gotten old yet.
May, of course, is Bike Everywhere month. For the last 4 years, I was the team captain at the Mighty P. We were a sometimes small but always mighty team! This year, though, I abdicated the throne for my friend Sandy! It just seemed to me the captain should be in the office! I was happy to join her team and just be a participant….

As much as we all love a good vacation, we look forward to it, plan it, and love when it happens, all too soon the day comes when you have to go home. You KNOW it’s a good vacation when you start thinking, I wonder if I could wrangle just one more day….
That was me this morning… Continue reading “Plan B comes to an end..”
I fully understand there are different people in the world. We all have the things we like and don’t like. Since Thursday, Michelle and I have been at Cannon Beach, with this view outside out window.
And we have loved every minute of it! I have to laugh, though, some people think our oceans are boring. Continue reading “So many things to do at our beaches!”
I am sure there are some who can come to the ocean and treat it just like they were at home. They sit inside, they watch TV, they play video games and never really look around to see all there is to see. Luckily we are NOT like that. One of the reason’s we go to the ocean, aside from just wanting to listen to the waves, is see all the beauty, natural and otherwise, you only get here.
My second phot blog post will share some with ya! Continue reading “The things you can see at the ocean!”
