Labor Day Weekend

We spent the three-day weekend in Monterey. If it seems like you're seeing a pattern, perhaps so. We love going there. How can you go wrong with the ocean, sun, great food, the aquarium and miles of bike trail with great scenery?

On Saturday we rode north on the bike trail and put in 20 miles. The Boy is getting stronger and set the pace for much of the ride.

Sunday came and the team was a split between the people who wanted to walk and shop, and the guy who wanted to ride. I rode solo while they walked, going south along 17-Mile Drive and exploring some new roads around Carmel. I ended up riding 26 miles with lots of climbing.

This shot reminded me of Mexico:

How could I not stop to take a picture of this beauty?

On Monday we woke up early and rode through Pacific Grove, circled back through Monterey, and rode along the bike trail. We put in our 20 miles and headed back to the hotel to pack up.

In between the rides we had some great meals, visited the aquarium twice, walked, watched the wildlife, and enjoyed being away from home.
