Eric flew in from Den­ver on Thurs­day after­noon for anoth­er won­der­ful vis­it and to par­tic­i­pate in his third San­ta Bar­bara Inter­na­tion­al Marathon.

High­lights of the week­end were vis­its with Phyl­lis, Car­ol’s Born­stein and Pre­ston, Ralph, Tom and neigh­bor Jill. Sat­ur­day morn­ing Tom and I did our usu­al sup­port­ing, root­ing, stalk­ing, and pro­vid­ing flu­id to Eric. Unfor­tu­nate­ly he was not feel­ing well so wise­ly end­ed his run at mile 21 where the cheer­ing Phyl­lis, Car­ol, and Vir­ginia await­ed.

Tom gave a call this morn­ing around 7:30 on the new PST (Pacif­ic Stan­dard Time) sug­gest­ing a bike ride to Carpin­te­ria.  Sound­ed great to me so at 8:10 we met at Los Banos and rode off togeth­er. We road down the coast, along Hwy 192, through Gob­er­nador Canyon to the Ven­tu­ra Coun­ty line, back through Carp, then up Padero Lane and on to Stack­ys in Sum­mer­land for lunch before head­ing home.

It was the nicest ride we’ve had for awhile, I think because we had an open agen­da and no need to rush to be any­where. There are more images of course. Click on the mon­tage above to view them.
