This past weekend Thommmee and I loaded up our bikes and headed to the beach.
(Well, he did most of the loading. I made the coffee and packed the lunch)
Our favorite place to ride is along the oceanfront path in Huntington Beach….
(also know as Surf City USA)
We parked and unloaded at Sunset Beach which is about 5 miles from the Huntington Beach Pier. Our goal was to reach the pier.
There is always so much to see along the route which makes the ride enjoyable.
A volleyball game…..
(or a nap)
……an exercise class……
…. and a beach clean-up day.
We checked out beachfront campers….
….and stopped to appreciate the surfers.
We noticed the local wildlife….
and stopped at one of many pit stops along the way.
Before we knew it we had arrived at the Huntington Beach Pier.
And now we had to make the return 5 mile trip.
We made it back in one piece (whew!) and met up with our daughter and grandkids for a few hours.
I guess we had not yet worn ourselves out yet so we decided to visit the Irvine Farmers Market. We loaded up the car and off we went.
(got some wonderful white peaches and fresh tomatoes)
Still full of energy, we decided to move on to our favorite flea market located in Orange. We lucked out since it is only a monthly event.
After all of that we were sufficiently exhausted and made the 30 minute drive home to collapse.
I think that was enough for one day!
