A little bit about me and a lot about the things we do.

The Mountains Were Calling

The start of Ron's four days off brought high winds and rain.  We decided it was best to stay at home and get some things done.  By Saturday the clouds had rolled away leaving a more manageable wind behind.  We decided that we just had to head towards the mountains. 

Our first stop was at our boy's since we needed to drop a few meals off for his next set of shifts...well, we didn't have to but I kind of spoil him.  He was no where to be seen but his house was full.

He even had two girls there.  Rachael was gardening and cleaning.
And Richelle was just ready to go on a motorcycle ride.  She wasn't cool enough to go with us...or was it the other way around????
I do like her helmet though.

We had lunch at a Greek Restaurant where the waiter almost fell over backwards when we walked in.  He thought Ron looked so much like a Greek actor.  He was almost speechless.  Rachael and I thought it was quite funny and Ron wore his sunglasses and tried to play the part.  After lunch, we headed for ice cream and then we off to the mountains.  We had already seen a moose with two babies along the way.  That was pretty exciting.  The skies were nice and blue and the mountains were spectacular.

We weren't the only ones enjoying the scenery. 
There were lots of people enjoying the beautiful day after a few nasty ones.  We found a pretty little spot to rest and soak in the sun.

Along our way we saw lots of deer, some big horn sheep and a couple of horses just running along the road.

True to our past biking days the clouds begin to roll in at the end of the day and we just stayed a head of the sprinkles but could hear the thunder pushing us towards home.

Now it's back to work for us.
