Hello From Monterey Happy Earth Day

Seems I’ve been gone so long that I can’t figure out how to make a post!! Let’s hope I figure this out so my iPad doesn’t end up against the wall…..this is my third attempt.

Seems there is HOPE for this world yet.

We (mostly me) have been riding north more. They are trying to keep folks off the trail. Today we made a run to Walmart up in Marina for you know “essentials”.

This post will be a mix of rides, walks and other stuff. I received an email from a “Rocky” the other day and it suggested posting anything about how we are dealing at this time….no bicycle needed in the photos. I’m assuming it was from the leader of this site but hey I might know another Rocky and not remember as “I Don’t Remember S..t” as they say.

The California Lilacs are blooming now…to bad they don’t smell like real lilacs. This was a ride in Ft Ord the other day.

We tend to wander through Sand City a lot now as well. More neighborhood street riding….less trail and downtown. Always on the lookout for bicycles.
This is also Sand City. This part of the trail has no “restricted to commuting” signs.
I’ve been riding way North up to the Dole Plant (which is exactly 10 mi north) along the way there are these fields with interesting Scarecrows.
Since the Morgan Tasting Room is closed (no work for me) we have been posting photos on social media about what staff have been doing. We went shopping and wine tasting at Asilomar the other day….well the wine tasting didn’t happen until later at home but they don’t know that.
Bicycle art seems to be a thing in Seaside.
These guys have been flying a lot lately! Sometimes they are not the appropriate “Social Distance” from folks. I was sitting on the beach FaceTiming with my Granddaughter and the guy lost control and I turned around and he was just about to run over me. I stayed still and he ran in front of me about a foot and finally lifted off. Might have been this guy.
A nice walk in Pacific Grove. The first time I drove to walk in 5 weeks. It felt weird and there were way to many people out at that end of town. I’m staying in my local area from now on.
Found this on a Seaside walk.
My current state of being……BTW I got a new DaBrim. My 6yr old one had so much curl in it that it wasn’t keeping the sun off.
Let’s believe in this sidewalk art I found on a walk.
Stay safe and healthy everyone…….

Janet here of Jack and Janet in Seaside, CA. We just love to ride our bikes and share and read stories from other such afflicted souls.

    Happy Earth Day yourselves! And congratulations on figuring out that the email was from ‘our’ Rocky. She figured out how to send a mass email from our site, and she and I wrote it together. We didn’t notice that even though it was sent from Cycle365, there was nothing on it to indicate where it came from. If we ever try this again, we’ll know better.

      Thanks Scott….I’m sorry I’ve been away but ..well there it is. Hope you are removed from your bite and when I think of you guys in John Day I think of our Trans Am ride… hope you are well!!

    You have a nice variety of bandanas. I like them. I also like those pictures with the borders and blurry edges. I’m sure they involve some kind of photographic technology I could never understand.

      I’ve been a bandanna wearer for years….there are so many things you can use them for when your hiking or cycling!! Now I’m in style….good to see you too. I’ve been following but not posting the whole trial and now this just turned my thinking upside down….stay well.

    Good to see you back and riding. Beautiful photos, the dark blue ocean is amazing.
    I know what you mean about “CRS” — unfortunately my case is advancing to CRAFT — Can’t Remember A . . . . . (Ill let you figure the rest out 😉 )
    Riding here hasn’t changed at all, free to go as always, of course we have no paths or anything like that, parks are open but buildings are closed, including the Field Offices.
    Fire Departments are warning people not to sterilize their masks in the microwave, especially those paper ones with the metal strip in them.

    Great post with great pictures! I’m glad you figured out who Rocky is. You’d think that after working on software development for over 30 years that I would have done a test of sending an email! Well next time. Keep posting!

      Hey…just glad I remembered….as always you guys are setting the bar for us!! Keep enjoying your life!

    Greetings from Sonoma County. Glad to see your train-robber bandanas. I’ve been wearing mine folded over and looped behind ears with elastic hair ties. Sometimes when I’m laboring uphill I feel like I can’t get enough oxygen through the fabric (well, sometimes I feel like that without the bandana), so I surreptitiously tug it down below my nose until I can catch my breath. Anyway, take care down there and be safe.

      Yes…bandannas go with the DaBrims!! It’s a look….and yes the heat is intense and then when it blows on your glasses well all bets are off because do you breath or see?! I usually take seeing!!

    Nice to see your post Janet. Now, I too have been away from the site for a while. But do plan to come back soon. Rocky’s email reached me as well, and has motivated me to at least ‘think’ about ;’-). I enjoyed all your photos and it is great that you are riding.

    Great to see you, and also great to see you riding! I hope you are recovering from the trauma of the trial. The vegetation photos make me think of pulling ice plant all day in Americorps at the Marina Dunes preserve 🙂
