Yikes! No Bikes!

Where have I been? Nowhere. Did the bike trip happen? Nope. Why not? Nowhere to stay.

You see, the place that I live is beautiful and everyone wants to be here in the summer. Not so much in the winter, however, unless they want ski/snowboard heaven. So, for a few locals to think that they could find a fairly reasonable cabin or campsite on the San Juan Islands in July was, well, ludicrous. There was no room at the inn, or the campground, or the cheap motel on the island we wished to explore by bike.

And so we tried to reschedule for the next week, but there was the company coming from out of town, the work thing (blast!) and the scheduling conflicts among us and it just didn't happen.

Maybe in September. Sigh. Something to look forward to. More time to be on my bike, "training."

More on the goings on in between later.

We spent a couple of LOVELY Christmases on Lopez.

(Though we just came back from Whidbey, but that was with the loan of someone's house so no real competition.)

Thanks for your comment on the pounds. Really appreciated it.

Hi j,
Yes, it was supposed to be Lopez for us. Hopefully in Sept. I'm so lucky to live here that I can hardly complain when everyone else wants to visit.
