Cats and Dogs

At the beginning of April I took a long bike ride - 38 miles- before the Spring rains returned. I'm hoping to get another ride in this week. I stopped at a cafe and met Luna. Her owner was inside and she kept me company at the outdoor table where I was sitting. She didn't quite know what to think of having her photo taken.

On my walk to the market, I meet these outdoor cats everyday. They have been spayed and released to where they were found and have been living in place for a few years now. The man in the red jacket comes by every morning to feed them and another woman in the afternoon to check their bedding/cat houses and health. The cats know everyone's schedules and will often see me before I even see them.

Since I can't have any pets due to my rental lease, it warms my heart to be able to have these daily visits with these community cats and the dogs I meet along the way. And because of these cats, I've made some new human friends.

Solo Bicycle Tour, Fort Ebey State Park

The Solo Bicycle Tour
Last May in 2015, the idea to do a solo bicycle tour popped into my head. As 2016 came around, I started seriously considering the trip and began planning in February. Learning how to do simple bike repairs, mapping a safer route, and getting back into shape after a lazy winter were checked off my list.

In the beginning, staying one night was my idea, but riding nearly 37 miles to sleep in a tent and then riding home the very next morning didn't seem fun, so I booked two nights. Fort Ebey State Park on Whidbey Island is a beautiful park with loads of hiking trails and beautiful ocean vistas.

There is a hiker/bicycle campground with a communal campfire and outhouse, but I wanted a private campfire a real bathroom with a shower, so I booked site 49 in the car camping area. The next day, just beyond where I camped, I discovered some walk-in campsites with their own campfire pits that look good for a future bicycle tour.  (skip the route part unless y…

Fort Ebey State Park Bicycle Tour

Five years ago when my husband talked about doing bike tours, I was all in. I love the excitement that comes with planning a trip, the challenges that come with the adventure and the satisfaction of completing one. Last Sunday, we got in our first bike tour of the season.

The morning we were to leave, I checked the Ferry times to see which times were cancelled due to low tides. To my surprise, they were all cancelled for the day because the Ferry dock was being repaired. So last minute change of plans! We would stay on the island and ride to Fort Ebey State Park at the Northern end of Whidbey Island. It would be about a 40 mile one- way trip which was longer than we wanted to do for the "warm up" tour, but I really wanted to take a trip!

We left around 11:00 a.m. and before we had even covered one mile, my husband's bike chain split. He found all the pieces to the connector link, put the chain back on, and we were on our way. This would happen three more …
