A fine Saturday in AlamedaI got to spend the whole day with my
lovely little honeychan. We woke up to sunshine this morning!
Morning sunshine is rare indeed in Alameda. After the Tour
De France ended at about 9:00 am, we headed out on our bicycles on a
tour of Alameda.
We started out on the airport trail.
It is a bit amazing how one can tune out an airport and
enjoy the other scenery in the vicinity. I guess it is odd to
have a bike trail around an airport in the first place. I don't
understand gardens but the shrubs seemed to like the nice day and
released all of the scents they had pent up. Then off to the Bay
Farm coast line. Something was going on at the Raiders
headquarters. It sounded like family day but the whole place is
always shrouded in secrecy so I have no way of knowing. The gale
force winds were just a stiff breeze today. It was mild enough to
ride side by side. There was a large group in training for some
event. It is very nice to live where people commute to enjoy the
area. The ride through Alameda proper was just beautiful.
There was a big class at the kite board shop. I felt sorry
for them since they were out early for lessons with no wind. The
lack of wind made for nice pictures of the birds.
There is this
cool little model airplane park that we jog and ride by all of the
time. Today, I took some pictures. There is a red plane in
one of the shots that happened to make it to the evening news about
cool things to do in the bay area. It is fun to have a picture of
something that a news caster just got done crash landing. After
our bike ride, we went out to the gym to lift some weights. We
went shopping at the exchange after the gym then off to some grocery
shopping. Michael got mad because we took so long. He has
to learn that the world does not revolve around him. We went home
fixed a gas leak on the hot water heater, took a nap, cleaned the fish
tank wrote this page and called it a day. I can't imagine a much
better day than today.
