So, in a week or so, Michelle and I will hit the 9 month mark of the day we moved to the coast. There were those who believed, and hell maybe still believe, that we’d get tired of living here.
In all honestly, just like anywhere, there are work days that suck ass, and days where nothing all that memorable happens. There is magic at the coast, but that magic does not happen every day.
But then there are days like today. Where from before sun up, to after sun down, the coast puts on a show! When that happens we love it! And since it happened today, I wanted to share with you… Continue reading “Dawn to dusk”
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”
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???”
Here it is, almost the end of June, and we are approaching the 3rd month here on the coast. And after three months, we are VERY much still enjoying life here. The pace is slower, working from home there is no commute and I am still discovering new things on a regular basis.
I love walking the beach, riding the coast, and just experiencing the feel of world around us. This last week, though, nature put on a serious show just for my benefit…
Just a warning for the squeamish, there are some ‘circle of life’ photos attached…

After all the issues with TSA and traffic and white knuckled driving, plus the battle for what little space is available to us on the plane, Michelle and I landed in Seattle about 30 minutes earlier than expected! HELL YEAH!! Musta been a pretty darn good tailwind!
We made a point to take advantage of the time…

It’s funny how a simple comment or question can cause you to look at things in a different way. Now don’t worry, I am not going to get all profound and do deep dive into symbolism. I am still scarred by a 9th grade English teacher after he made us read “The Old Man and the Sea” when it comes to symbolism!
With that being said, though, the photos from last week DID seem to change with the amount of time we had left to be at the ocean… Continue reading “The photos tell more stories than I thought!”
I am always excited in the spring time when Daylight Savings time hits. Once this happens, the sun stays up long enough to allow after work rides! Here in the northwest, during June and July, it is light almost till 10 PM! I love these rides!
Now that it is October, the sun goes down sooner, the temps are lower, and, being the northwest, it gets a bet wetter. All these combined for me NOT to want to ride last night…. Continue reading “Glad I sucked it up a bit!”
