Time to Leave

Thursday the weather in Maine turned beautiful!  I hated to leave. When I was running in the morning it kept changing from sunny to overcast and cool and I thought that was how it was going to be.  But once I was biking it turned into a gorgeous day!  My run and bike were both fairly short but great. I cannot get enough of exercising by the ocean.  I always wonder if I lived there if I would stop appreciating it but I don't think so.  There seem to be a lot of people always out walking in Maine. Are people more inclined to exercise there (or any beautiful place) than other places because of the scenery?

I ran 3 days in a row!!! The first time I have done that in a long time. They were very easy runs but still.  I skipped swimming today as I want to do a long run tomorrow and a decent bike ride Sunday and this was my chance for a day off.  Plus I have a lot to do at home.  Coming back to reality - I guess it's the paying after the playing.

Yesterday I also got together with my college roommate whom I haven't seen in 13 years!  I have a feeling now we will keep in touch.  It was great to see her and we had a lot to talk about. In many ways it was like we had just seen each other.

I took this picture when I started out on my run and really like it.

If you look closely you can see some surfers. They always
fascinate me. They were out in force. It was windy. Do they
like that?

It was sunny before it got cloudy again - still on my run.

I also like this shot.

On the bike now and the sun is out in full force.

I was trying to show the flag and how windy it was - once again.

Perfect picture of the Maine coastline.

Getting the lobster for my next lobster roll.

Sharing one of my favorite places with Deb.

Your pictures are great. I really like the one of the lighthouse with all the clouds. Looks ominous and reminds me of stories about lighthouses in storms.

What beautiful pictures! Sounds like a wonderful trip. I think I'd like traveling alone and getting to do whatever the heck I wanted, though there's a good chance "whatever the heck I wanted" would involve a lot of sleeping.

Have you had your bike in for adjustments lately? If not, you might think about doing that if you're dropping your chain. Maybe they need to do something with your derailleur limits (or something like that...I don't know what the heck I'm talking about, but it shouldn't be doing that and it's probably an easy adjustment for your bike shop to do.
