So from the lake we pedalled back to the start position where we had cleverly parked my truck at a restaurant/bar with outdoor seating where we proceeded to eat giant yummy salads in the lovely sun. All in all we rode about 16 miles that day. As much as parts of the ride were a bit frustrating, it was actually a great ride and I really enjoyed seeing the city that way. I just would have prefferred to go a wee bit faster.
After lunch and the ride we went back to get cleaned up and then walked back into downtown to go to the GIANT REI flagship store thats there. Its a pretty amazing place. Its like an REI on steroids. Its got everything and anything you can think of. I bought some cliff bars, some chamois butter, and a riding map of the San Juan Islands and really enjoyed poking about the store in general. While wandering the store I came across this and couldn't resist a photo. Its an IRONMAN branded jogging stroller. Really? Too funny!
After that we wallked down to the market to get some fresh seafood and made an amazing dinner of crab, tuna steaks, and clams. It was really good!
So now you're all caught up to the end of Saturday. Lots more to tell! Sunday (today) was an amazing day that started with a spectacular long ride and then the long trip up to San Juan Island where I'm writing this from. But I'm exhausted now... so its time for me to head to bed. More to come soon!
