Bikes + Bites

December 27, 2008


We had beautiful blue skies all morning but the clouds have now covered over :(

But the biking session was a success. We rode all around the island for about an hour and a half.





Apparently my SPF 55 wasn’t rubbed in when I came outside


We came back around 12:30 for lunch. I wasn’t terribly hungry yet, but it seemed like a good time to eat. We brought a cooler of ingredients for sandwiches each day and have been able to store them in the inn’s fridge (and use the kitchen). It’s been very convenient.

I made a Spinach Salad with POM seeds (brought from home), carrot, a tomato slice and honey mustard.


And open-faced grilled cheese with provolone


A few chips and a carrot with PB


And half a grapefruit, which I shared with Larbs.



Matt A. and I are going to to running later this afternoon when we digest. I am heading out now for some reading + walking until I get to the beach with Larbs and Matt are. The husband is off biking with Karen + Andrew. We’re all planning to renzdevous at the market for a wine tasting around 4:30 :)

That looks like PERFECT weather for biking! I’m so jealous–all we have in Canada are snow and grey skies!
And the picture of you and the sunscreen is too cute XD
Enjoy the rest of your day!

What a fun day! I can’t believe you guys are in shorts. I’m in Scottsdale, AZ for the holidays and it’s so cold. I froze on my run in the 30 degree weather this morning. Enjoy the warmth for me :)
