The wind in my hair, the sun on my face…

Posted Oct 14 2008 4:03am

…and spending the day with my sister, riding bikes in Half Moon Bay.  Does it get any better?

What an awesome Saturday I had today!  Not only did I get to spend the day with my sister, but we got in a ton of exercise, biking along the Coastside Trail in Half Moon Day.  We couldn’t have asked for better weather either.  Half Moon Bay is known for its fog, but today it was gloriously sunny, although really, really windy.  (Which is why there was no fog). The water was sparkling and so blue, almost glittering, to our right as we road south-bound on the trail.  The people we passed along the way were all so happy and friendly, saying hello and wishing us a good day.  It was one of those afternoons that comes around so rarely that you have to cherish it and know that this is karma’s way of letting you know you’re leading a good life.  It was magical.

I’m not sure exactly how far we road our bikes, but we were riding at a fairly moderate pace (especially when the wind was against us) for over an hour and a half.  I can’t think of any better way to spend 90 minutes than seeing the gorgeous ocean below our paved path.  It was exactly as I had hoped when we first planned the day.

LC and I said how much we wished we’d done this bike ride earlier in the season, so we could’ve taken advantage of the great weather.  Now that it’s mid-October, this is probably the last bike ride we’ll be able to do in Half Moon Bay until January.  By then it will be really cold and rainy much of the time, which doesn’t make for great biking conditions.

Still, with views similar to these (below), it’s worth the wait.  Not only that, but I earned 7 Activity Points on WW the day before my first weigh-in - bonus!!
