You know, I think I went the entire month August without a post! Oops. And stuff did happen. I may have to go back and do an August post soon.
However, this is not that post.
First off, as always, the important part. Michelle and I are happy healthy and employed.
Fun fact, when I donated blood a couple weeks ago, the Red Cross did a Covid antibody test to see if I had ever had it. I came back negative. I was curious as both Michelle and I were pretty sick in February. But it turns out it was just a bug.
While Sunday’s bike ride and yesterdays beach walk were met with sun, warmth and blue skies (I might have a bit of a sunburn!) Today has been foggy and blustery! The winds are out of the north and gusting to 20+ mph, which is normal for us.
This is fun pedaling southbound, but when I have to turn around north to go home the fun stops and true work begins! I have done these rides before and will do it again, but really just didn’t wanna today.
As we all know, many of my discoveries happen when I am on a bike. However, in this instance, I have ridden by the location I am blogging about many times, and had never taken a right turn to check things out. In my defense, most of the time when passing the tiny Town of Neskowin, I have had over 90 miles under my legs and I have a big hill coming up and I just want to get home and eat….
Its funny. For a while there, I was going through a serious Blog drought. I kinda felt like I had told all my stories, not much was happening that I hadn’t already discussed cycling wise. At times I considered taking a hiatus.
Fast forward a few months. Being in a new town, and on the coast and discovering places I’ve never seen…. Even short rides warrant a post! I know as I am here longer, this will change. But right now its fun! And tonight was a blog worthy short ride…. Continue reading “Elk Butts!”→
Everyone has preconceptions about parts of the country we don’t live in. California is full of surfer dudes and it never rains; the midwest has tornadoes, blizzard and cowboys; the Northeast is crowded, rude, and cockroachy; the southeast is hell on earth, hot, humid, sticky, and full of people who drink PBR; the desert southwest is an oven, sandy , and full of blondes ladies who like pumpkin spice lattes.
Ask people about the Pacific Northwest, and you will get things like Coffee, liberal nut jobs, trees and that it rains ALL the time.
Truth be told, those that live in these areas will tell you, for the most part (Though I think even the southeast people would at least nod at the ‘hell on earth’ description), that the preconceptions are not true. Believe it or not, it does NOT rain here in Seattle all the time… Continue reading “You can hear the plants drinking…”→
A few weeks ago, Michelle said “We need to do something fun for the 4th of July weekend!” Now we aren’t big fireworks people, nor the simple 4th picnic in a park. Nope, when it comes to us, something fun involves adventure, and yesterday was no different!
