Missing Summer

Well maybe not entirely. I used to love the winter, but that was when I lived in a house that actually stayed warm. Our apartment when the wind kicks up can be very hard to keep warm. Thus I’m kind of missing those days of basking in the sun and feeling warm all the way through. I took this photo over last summer on our only visit to White Memorial that year. I’m determined to get out and enjoy the outdoors in 2010. It seems like so long ago but in 2006, I was biking at least once a week and doing all sorts of other things outdoors.

While on vacation we had planned to get some biking in. I’ve been pretty out of it this past year. Also it’s not advised for Craig while he has his neck issue.

Acadia : Day 3 : Witches Hole

Morning came pretty soon. Woke up around 7:30am. Actually Tiff woke me up when she sent an instant message to my cell phone. LOL. Only thing that sucks about camping is having to walk in the cold to the bathroom. But at least the bathrooms are clean and not too cold. We headed into town this morning and went to the organic grocer picked up some groceries and also had breakfast there. After there we headed into the park, got lost on the loop road, but made it back to where we wanted to go. We did the loop ride around Witches Hole. It was 3.4 miles with quite a few hills, nothing serious, but when your seriously out of shape, it all feels serious. LOL. The weather was incredible again today. Below are some pics from the ride.
