I’m sure Memorial Day weekend means many things to many people. In 2007 I went on a rant about the shopping value of the holiday. This year we had family come to visit. Mrs. C’s sister and nephew, Ty traveled from Houston to get a sniff of what goes on at Rocky Acres. I think we had a reasonable amount of fun and of course, because I equipped the big horse with a new mud flap we had an extended session of what Mrs. C refers to as ‘sucker weather’. You know, sunny and 70, with a light breeze.
We spent a little time on Budd Inlet. Kayaks for rent at Boston Harbor Marina are ALWAYS a treat for visitors, provided the weather cooperates.
And we went for a ride or two.
Ty was GREAT on the tandem! I think stokers never really realize how much they contribute to forward motion. I could definitely tell when he was putting the power to the pedals, (at least one and often two gears worth) and I can also see that he’s speed addicted! Anytime he was pedaling it was one and one speed only, FASTER! I think if he cares to he could become the next Mark Cavendish!
It was great fun having them; I only hope they enjoyed their visit as much as we did.
Unfortunately on Monday I came up lame with another cranium crushing sinus infection. It just happened that I was scheduled for the supposed final follow up with the surgeon today. He put me back on antibiotics and steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs. He told me not to be too disappointed, the surgical recovery looks as it should and the remaining inflammation of the sinus linings is (he thinks) a function of this latest infection. He scheduled me for a return visit in a month (gotta love that I-5 drive!)
PS: Here's a sunrise pic from the window of my motel room up in Pt Angeles on my road trip to the peninsula last week.
Work is not all bad.
