Half Moon Bay Coastside Trail

To escape from another heat wave, we left in the morning for Half Moon Bay today.  
When we reached Venice Beach, it was foggy on the sea, on the hills.  We put thin jackets on.

From the parking lot we rode to the South first, and the trail was a very nice beginning so we had fun.
Then a challenging bumpy trail started, but I rode well for a while, 

and I got tired and gave up. 




We turned around and faced to the North. 



Going North was up slope, especially after passing Venice Beach.
We enjoyed all kinds of scenery along the trail.





We ate fish dishes at the Sushi Main Street for our lunch afterwards, which was tasty.  We walked on the street and bought fish and vegetable Sandwich at Fish 'n' Frites for our dinner. And picked some sweets at Moonside Bakery And Cafe.
And we came back happily.

My butt hurts, my hip joints hurt, and my small back hurts now.

Ho-o-o-t!!!!

We had nice weather a couple of days last week, then hot weather came back!
Last 4th of July he managed to bake pizza in the morning, and we bicycled for a while. 
 
And had a humble celebration with the special napkins which our friend gave us long time ago.

Since then we haven't had any exercise for two days; this morning when I just tried to hold my chin with my hand, my wrist snapped and hurt awfully.  I was frightened.  At almost the same time his shoulder snapped and hurt him.  OK.  We need to ride!
Once we started riding bicycles, we felt so good.  50 minutes later the temperature got up so much and the heat from the road really stung us, so we gave up and went back home.

It hit more than 100° F today.  Utilizing this heat I started drying our garden oranges in the cage from yesterday. 



It worked out very well.

Now it finally came down lower than 90F.  All orange slices must have been dried well.

New idea, new challenge?!

In spite of several left over pains from yesterday's gardening work, I walked 2.5 miles with my friend who kindly stopped patiently a couple of times for me.  

Then, in comfortable late afternoon I bicycled with him, because I really wanted to try 90 cadence with metronome on smart phone.  That was fun at beginning, but I noticed that speed is impossible for me and for him either.  So we changed to 80 cadence, even that was not easy, but we went through and back.

I think I found it fun to keep trying.  😁😍
