Pedal Pushing

I went and did it...
I invested in a bike,
and helmet,
and pocket holder,
and a couple of other accessories that were just for fun.

Now understand that as an ED doc,
I see a lot of the bad that can happen when you're out riding...

But, I also understand the health benefits
of getting off your butt and doing something...
So I am...

Today, my first 5.6 mile foray took along 
the American River Bike Trail
which has some 30+ miles of trails...

I thought I was going to puke my guts out after 
the first hill just getting to this point...

We'll just work our way up slowly, shall we...?

A Marvelous Voyage

I know I haven't written in a while.  You see, I took two weeks off work and went on a cruise across the Panama Canal.  From Miami to Los Angeles.  I had to work before the cruise to make up for the time I would be gone, and coming home, I had to jump back into work to make up for the time I missed.   But, I digress...

I thought I would share a few of the over 1500 photos and videos we took while on the trip.  I have some free time at the end of the month, so I will have a movie to go along with this, but for now, enjoy the scenery... My husband and I sure did...

Cruise day.  View from Miami Hilton Downtown.  Our boat is second from the left.

Our room steward made towel animals every evening... fun trying to guess what he was going to do next...
