Biking WA – Mukilteo to Bellingham

  Rain started as a sprinkle as we drifted beyond the trees and the rivers and streams. Light playful rejuvenating rain. Heavy and thick getting louder and more powerful.      Soon enough we were in full on downpour where our waterproof gear was suddenly not and we were chilly little bikers! For a couple of hours…

Valle de Los circos -Socorrito to Catavinya

   Lanky waving Dr. Seuss cactus, bright liquid blue sky saluting, puffy cotton cloud drifting, excruciating intense heat riding, melted deteriorating pavement has been consuming my reality these last couple days.

Cookie Factory Mural

Sweet smell of baking goodness fills my air as flour rises to my face and the sound of cookies dancing along the conveyor belt fill my existence. I climb high to the last step of the ladder, almost balanced and gaze at the factory high above all else. Spanish music is playing and I am…
