Thanksgiving Part II -Bike Ride November 27, 2010

Posted by frizzybaker in Adventures.

The day-after-Thanksgiving activity was a 40-mile bike ride on our local rail-trail. If you missed Thanksgiving Part I you can read it Here.

 The before picture:

Fall has officially made it to Florida, making for a beautiful ride.

It was a tough ride at times since our legs were still recovering from the previous day’s race. Here come the boys!

And here come the girls!

Away they go!

We encountered only ONE problem during the ride. Before we left, we decided to pack delicious left over turkey sandwiches with homemade cranberry sauce. We thought we’d just purchase some coffees at a coffee shop and eat our lunch in there. Pas de problem, oui? Non. 😦

The problem was that the town we biked into was NOT biker friendly. There were NO picnic tables, NO water fountains, NO bathrooms and NO coffee shops. We found a little Cafe that served coffee and cookies but they said we had to order a meal and we could NOT eat our turkey sandwiches inside. hmph

And then it started to rain. . .

So ordered coffee to go and sat outside the Cafe and ate our turkey sandwiches and drank our coffee.

But when you are with good company, it doesn’t matter what you are doing or where you are eating, because there are always good times 🙂

Once we refueled, we were back at it and all smiles.

We finished up utterly exhausted.

The after picture:

Ray had to help Debbie stand for the first couple of minutes because her legs would NOT work!!

She had to foam roll her legs out so they would work again.

Now, you’re probably wondering where my husband and his family went. They chose the smarter option of spending the day in St. Augustine on the beach! I tried to load some of their pictures onto my camera but they did not transfer for some reason! We visited this past Monday, so here is a picture of me and Kevin in St. Augustine during round One.

We all reconvened for home-made turkey soup and then Kevin and I had a SURPRISE for everyone. Tickets to see ‘Messiah Rocks!’ at our Performing Arts Theater! You can see a slice of what we experienced here. It was a great way to “rock” into the Christmas season.

Like all good things, it had to end. I said good bye to my parents, the in-laws, my aunt and uncle;

good bye to pumpkin season;

and good bye to fall.

Until next year!
Happy Thanksgiving 🙂

That was a sweet surprise! Are you sad to see pumpkin season end?

yes! especially now that I have your trader joe’s pumpkin butter and pumpkin waffle mix that mom brought down. Pumpkin might make a couple of appearances until christmas however 😉
