road trip

Linda and i took a road trip/adventure to central Oregon last week.  stayed thursday and friday nights at Sunriver, south of Bend, where we used our time-share and had a great studio apt. with an actual "murphy bed".  the place was lots roomier than i'd thought it would be.  was right next to the golf course... which would have been really great if we were golfers.  the weather was fantastic.. sunny and warm.  we rode bikes, walked, set up spinning wheels on the porch and watched golfers.  in other words, we had a slow and relaxing time!  i hadn't ridden a bike for probably 20 years.  when i told that to the guy checking out the bikes, he told me not to say that out loud... there'd been 3 or 4 recent crashes by people who'd said that... and injuries that involved hospitals.  must admit i was a bit wobbly at first, but did ok.

Saturday morning we went to Sisters for the annual outdoor quilt show.  when we were about 5 miles away the traffic slowed to a crawl... lots of people going to the quilt show and many trying to get past  Sisters on their way to portland and other places to the west.  the thru traffic was detoured thru the side streets, as the main street was closed for the day to accommodate the quilt show.

Like "they" say . A bicycle ride once learned can't forget. Or whatever!
