We opted not to go far today...just over 20 miles to make sure our bikes are in check and everything is in working order. We arrived in Seaside and it was really quite cold so we decided to splurge and get a hotel room as a send off present to ourselves. We got a nice double suite with an ocean view on the beach. We can see the Goonies mountain in the distance from the scene at the end of the movie. Took a stroll around town, bought some Italian meatball subs and salads and relaxed. I took a dip in the hot tub and sauna and took a late run on the beach with Liam amidst several bonfires. It was beautiful.
We also celebrated Liam's 1st Birthday by getting him some rainbow sherbert and a candle. Looking forward to Day 2, but am expecting 3 moderately annoying climbs, but the downward coasting makes it worth it!
Our theme today was EAT FEAR. We knew we could do it...and we did. Lovin' the moment. Day 2 is gorgeous out...I'll try to update and add pics soon.
Thanks again for all of the encouragement and notes. =)
