I should had gone for the car ride to Vancouver or Whistler! If saving money was the goal.
We went for our bike ride but that did not prevent a stop to do some shopping... Our tires were a little low so I stopped at them community center that has a little bike repair corner to pump up our deflated tires. The pump was broken - more air went out of the tire than what went in. Still enough to ride further to where we bought them last year... So off we ride tomthen bike shop.
As quick as you can say one two three I have purchased Noni a nice new pink basket, an odometer and a new U lock. Leaving the store 30 minutes later I was two hundred dollars less.
Ouch...
From there we can continued to ride around the village - over and around to the beach area and then eventually back home. From the reading of the new odometer IT said 13.5 km.
I estimate between three and four Km to the bike shop from our place. So this would be about 18 k in total. 10 miles.roughly.

I have been out for a walk this morning with a couple of friends, now I have to decide what to do this afternoon. It is sunny and warm. I see effects of wind blowing the tree branches and long grass growing in my flower pots - so I am debating whether or not I should go for a bike ride. Noni wants to get out of the house.. I could drive to Whistler or Vancouver but this will cost gas money and most likely money spent shopping as well. I want to save some money so I don't particuly want to do either of those last two options. Noni is pasting around the house so I know she is very bored.
So I thnk it will be a bike ride.. After all it is sunny and warm - the rains will be coming back too soon..

The sun is shining and it is very warm out. I went for a morning walk with Dalhouse and a friend from church then I came home and suggested to my wife's that we drive to West Vancouver.
My friend told me about Ambleside Park that has a pond with lots of birds. Blue Herons, Swans, Ducks, Teals, Spottd Towhees, House Sparrows and Gulls. He was correct. I brought a container of bird seed and Noni was so happy to feed the hungry flock. Then we went walking and walking and walking along the Seawall.
We had made a quick stop at the mall where I bought a new pair of shoes, lunch and some groceries.
I thnk this will help in breaking the February Blues - cabin fever..
