We went to Bethany for the week and I totally shut down.
You can’t call it a vacation if you don’t get away from your routine at least a little, but I still recorded everything I ate, aside from one Sunday night when I was supervising the grill and trying to make sure my beer remained full at all times which threw me off base enough to lose track. I had pretty much everything I’ve been craving for the past 8 months – Steak dinner with sides, Pit Beef sandwich, quality ice cream from every place we could find, handmade candy, the finest microbrews Delaware had to offer, Scallops sauteed in a butter/garlic sauce, Crabs n’ Bud, a donut, and a spicy pulled pork burrito (left the wrap and cheese on the plate, so my tastes must be changing)
I was bad, but we took the bikes and I got in some nice long rides, including one 54 miler where I rode a loop around Indian River Bay at close to a 17mph average. It would have been even higher except I lazed my way through the boardwalk and Junction & Breakwater Trail. I swam in the ocean fighting the surf for as long as my pale skin could tolerate, and walked about everywhere I could.
On the blogfront I came up with a way to upload snippets of my photo gallery to flickr, so new images with descriptions will pop up there. That’ll keep me more active because it’s easier. (I tire of writing, resizing images and uploading them to wordpress)
Now it is back to the grind with a few good memories to keep me rolling.
