Short ride in Spokane

Tuesday, April 29, 2014

Seeing police vehicles from Redmond, Bellevue, Clakamas and Yakima as we pulled in to the parking lot of our hotel gave us pause!! Was there some state-wide riot thing going on? or was there a police party happening? Vickie could not help herself from walking to the other end of the lot to find out. Turns out there is a police academy here -- I am not sure where "here" is -- Spokane or our hotel -- but our mystery is solved.

Although a little tired from the long drive -- Gerry and I wonder how she and I can be exhausted when Vickie drove the entire 300 miles -- we spent no time resting before jumping into out riding togs and taking off to explore by bike.

V & G have not spent much time in Spokane and had not seen any of the sights such as the huge water fall smack dab in the middle of town. So we found the trail that took us along the river, to Riverfront Park, and through some quiet neighborhoods with views of the river from the bluffs.

Trail ended and we had quiet neighborhood streets to explore

By the end of our ride we had a late dinner (I don't recall the last time I ate dinner at 8:00) by the riverside and were ready to say goodnight to a nice day and evening.

Eastern Washington for some sun

April 29, 2014


Vickie and Gerry will be picking me up in an hour. We add my bike and gear to theirs and drive to Spokane for a week in the sun. Of course, now that we are heading for the sun in eastern WA, our weather here at home has turned from gray, wet, cold, windy days to sun and warm temps for this week. Murphy's law?

We have gotten in a couple of rides even in the bad weather (and bad back). As I await my friends, I will share a few photos.

Lucy has not met a hill that she cannot walk up!
Needs no words


We tired them out

This is serving as a test as I have not been doing any blogging for a while and am ensuring that I can still remember how it is done.

Last minute prep now and I will be off. Susan likes for me to be gone these few days so she can do her ending of school and grading period without my interruptions ;'-).

See ya later.

About my back

This is all I am going to say about my back issue and treatment -- I have yet to reach the sun at the top of that last hill.
