30 on 30 of 30.
30 miles on the 30th day of 30 Days of April challenge. I didn't have this as a goal when I started out, but as I was riding my route I thought why not end the challenge with 3 30s! And so I did.
Riding through some of my usual neighborhood loops, I could see some remnants of the Great Mukilteo Garage Sale in the form of ------ trash. Piles of "stuff" await the annual "everything pick up" by Waste Management. One person's trash is another person's treasure --- but not all of it ;'-)
On my rides I often find my own treasures, or road swag.
|A very good find with a lot of tape left on the roll.|
After some basic loops, skipping most of the cul de sacs, I went on to the little town(?) of Perrinville where I knew there would be a tea and crumpet place.
Passing by a local park I pulled in to see the fields and the skate park.
|No one here today so it is an empty skate park|
Finally I got to my earned tea stop.
|It was rather busy inside and I chose a table outdoors as there was sun!|
|Stash Green Tea and an orange roll. Yummmm.|
While sitting at my table with my treat, a man and wife walked out of the Bistro and toward my table. She said "did you ride here for Harbor Point? We live there and I recognize your bunny ears." She gave me a little applause and said "good for you". I didn't feel I had ridden that far, but to those who do not ride it was quite a distance.
Each time I think I will take off the bunny ears I get some really nice comments, smiles, thumbs up or horn toots. Today a gentleman stopped his car (on a very light traffic neighborhood roadway), rolled down his window and said "nice hat".
But I guess it is time to crop my helmet and get rid of the ears until next year. I will keep my eye open for other fun helmet toppings for later in the season. I do have Olaf from the movie Frozen that is always a hit, but that is for December.
