Giving Thanks

An American tradition, Thanksgiving, is an important holiday. Not because of it’s history, but because it’s good for us to stop and ponder the state of our lives. And at least once a year, I do stop, and think of how lucky I am and give thanks. Here’s a couple quick photos from my Thanksgiving day ride.

Cheviot

A cheviot is a a black faced Scottish sheep. It’s also my new bike from Rivendell. My daughter wanted a Sam Hillborne and I wanted a mixte, so we stripped my Hillborne, which my daughter built up to her liking. I then bought a Cheviot, the new luscious green and used my old components to build it up (though I did splurge on new Paul Racer brakes). Here’s some close-ups……..

Big Sur

We took a two-nighter out to Big Sur with the T@G. Sunny in the campground but foggy at the beach and recovering from an eye injury after our morning at the beach I needed a nap. A low key trip for me. I BBQ great Paleo hamburgers (no bun) for dinner, with sides of cole slaw and potato salad. Port for dessert.
