We are enjoying our return to life with other vaccinated people. Our west coast interlude came to an end a few weeks ago and I’ve had some time to reflect on it. The best part of it was the visits with friends, some new and the rest established relationships (not old!).
Judy came to visit us and we loved our time together. We even got the chance to introduce her to the famed Balboa Banana. We earned our treats with the over four mile roundtrip walk to get them, and besides, they were bananas, so they had to be good for us!
This trip also saw a return to weekly rides with Britt and Kevin. We met and became riding and lunch companions about five years ago. The pandemic had kept us apart and it was nice to catch up. We also had the added bonus of meeting another couple they recently started riding with.
We missed our monthly tandem club ride for May, but we were able to participate in a group ride with a new-ish (and still forming) SoCal group. Five couples met in Irvine and enjoyed a 45 mile ride that Roger created (no surprise). It’s also not surprising that we had a rest stop at Pacific Whey and we shared a dessert.
A discussion of our peopling would be incomplete if I didn’t mention that we had 2 lunch dates in San Clemente with one of our fave couples. Michael is camera shy and we frequently forget to snap a photo when spending time with him and Nancy so there is no photographic evidence of our most recent visit…maybe next time!
Because there was no Georgia Tandem Rally this year, we actually celebrated my Birthday while on the left coast. We had a fantastic dinner out and it’s a rule that you must have dessert on your special day.
We are currently working on some travel plans for the summer as we continue to get out and enjoy the freedom of immunity. We’ll be sure to share our trips and our desserts as they happen.
