June 29-30, 2013
This weekend, we loaded up our “old school” bikes and headed for the beaches of Ocean Shores, WA to visit Eric’s parents. Lucky us- they have a home just minutes from the ocean.
Eric’s dad turned the big 8-0 on Saturday. Happy Birthday, Darrel!
Once we arrived, we were eager to get down to the sand.
Eric got busy pulling various toys out of Darrel’s storage shed…
Meanwhile, I walked the beach…
Notice the mother-in-law theme here:
- Eric rode a Bianchi bike that came from his mother-in-law (my mom).
- Darrel rides an old Raleigh Colt that belonged to his mother-in-law (Eric’s grandma).
We stopped along the way to enjoy the views.
(Not every summer day at Ocean Shores is quite this perfect! It can be quite cold and foggy.)
I didn’t ride my mother-in-law’s bike. I rode the blue Schwinn beach cruiser that we found several years ago at a thrift store for $14.99.
My back was in perfect comfort, but the seat felt so bulky that it was like I had a big diaper between my legs. HA!
Finally– no vegan blog post would be complete without some vegan food. I worked up an appetite!
Here’s the GF (Gluten Free) Power Plate that I had from the Veggie Grill on the way home.
