Enjoying the summer

Well, between the job and summer, I haven't really given much attention to the blog. So what are you waiting for? Go out there and take advantage of the summer. It's time to get away from the computer, at least for a bit, and exercise and think and wonder new things. It's good for you.

On Saturday, I biked the whole of Monterey Bay Coastal Bike Trail. It's paved and separate from vehicle traffic. I went up to Lover's Point on the Monterey Peninsula. It's true, they still have sardines at Cannery Row. The place was packed chock full of people! The private parking lots wanted to charge $15 to $18 just to park! I ended up parking at Fisherman's wharf in the public parking lot which cost me $10 for the whole day. I then rented a bike from Adventures of the Seas which is right there. That cost me $25. Gotta pay a hefty price when you don't have a vehicle to transport a bike! Bikes are plentiful on Craigslist for the price of the rental.

Anyways back to the bike trail.. I went up to Lover's point and then back down and then cycled north to the end of the trail somewhere in northern part of Marina where the trail ends on Del Monte Blvd. I then pedaled back down to Fisherman's Wharf. It was about 4.5 hours of fun.

The next weekend? I'll probably do some kayaking near Moss Landing / Elkhorn Slough or take the Kayak tour in Monterey Bay and visit Monterey Bay Aquarium. If I am up near Moss Landing, I'll be sure to eat at Phil's. I've heard great things about the restaurant.

I've got a LG Optimus V cellphone on Virgin Mobile waiting for me that I will start using to take pictures of the area and post them on the blog starting in July. That will finally introduce me to the world of a smartphone. Yes, I still use a 20th century cellphone that I use to ONLY make calls on, and I use the minutes sparingly.
