Nice day!

Monday, July 26, 2010

We got a day off and took in a bike ride last week. I found out I am a little out of shape from the last time we visited that trail. It is a 6 mile trail with lots of hills up and down - some easy - some harder. Then we come back down a lot more quickly - esp since we take more pics going up making it a 12 mile trip. It is alongside a reservoir so we have the nice lake view and then go through the trees and see wildlife.
Here are some pics

starting out and heading up

I stopped because just ahead were a family of about 7 dear grazing along both sides of the road

A little closer view of the deer

on the move and going slow so dh can get a pic, lol!

nice view of the lake

me after the highest point - yep red faced, hot & out of shape - couldn't wait to get to that bench, rest and get some water...

dh on the way down

just a little humor - we often see speed limit signs for bike trails but not radar enforced lol!

Later we drove over along the coast and was gonna get on a trail there but it was cloudy misty and cool so we walked around the town instead. The next picture was a mural on the whole side of the building - Half Moon Bay is the area where they have the Maverick surf contest - this mural is so lifelike - looks like a real active wave - just had to snap a picture


It was a nice day off and we always love getting out for a ride or a walk on the beach.
Have a great day!

    Love your pics! I am just starting back to biking...my hubby and I are looking at a pair of schwinn hybrids - his and her - tonight. He hasn't really committed to riding but I can usually persuade him. I have been riding about 1 week and i am riding about 8 miles but I am on a really old bike that was my daughter's and the seat is so little. I grunt over every bump. You look like a pro! Ca looks beautiful. I am here in beautiful bucks county pa and I can't wait to get out and really ride. Happy biking!!
