Wind!! Can we say wind!! It’s been so windy that this years Great Pacific Race has been delayed twice. If not the poor crews might be stuck in Monterey Bay for weeks. You might recall this is a rowing race from Monterey to Hawaii that’s held every other year.
These ladies that are part of a three woman team were trying to get turned around in the marina the other day.
We did see a fun group of future racers on the water today. Summer “Toro” sail camp started today. It is so fun to watch them gain their skills. They are pulled out of the marina by their instructors.
Jack gets photo credit for this one.
Ok….this is a bike journal. Enough of the water sports. After meeting up with Jack I headed on out alone. Wasn’t sure if I was going to ride or just turn and go home as I’m really tired of going into the wind. But I stuck it out and ended up making it to Lovers Point. I love all the Monterey Cypress trees in that park and decided that one might be worthy for todays ride. If you look close you can spot Little Bessie. I had to get way out to get the entire tree which I think was at least 100ft tall. They can live to be 300-400 yrs old.
On the way home I passed one of my favorite murals. The Cannery Row boys from the novel.
When coming or going home we always pass through this wonderful eucalyptus forest. It is either a cooling place or a place to get through fast because it’s cold. It is it’s own micro climate.
Just for you And the boys Em.
Oh yea…..this happened today. We heard sirens for an hour this morning. Seems a car went out of control at Starbucks jumped the curb and ran up Into McDonalds hit right where the gas line was and burnt it to the ground! 😲
Well that’s all folks……
