On the Rad Road to Recovery

Back Bay Loop bike path: Newport Beach, California Last day of February. (Hooray! my least favorite month). Tomorrow begins March, which brings first day of spring (vernal equinox, 21st). And none too soon.

Speaking of tomorrow .. that's the First Thursday Art Walk (here in Laguna) .. for those of you who live locally. Perhaps we'll see you out on the town tomorrow night.

In other news, I definitely have a sense (after injuring my back) that I need a recovery. No longer in debilitating pain, just not feeling very robust.

Whenever I feel the need to recuperate (like now), I always make a crock of my nuclear grade stew (which makes me feel grounded) and exercise out in nature (which I find emotionally rejuvenating).

today's entry continues here

I made the stew last weekend (with lamb shoulder, it's all gone now). And my new exercise stomping ground (Crystal Cove) is the Back Bay, ~ a mile away, in Newport Beach.

I have two pictures for you. Here's how the Back Bay looks at > sunRISE. And here's how it looks at > sunSET.

There's a path (paved) that takes you all the way around the Back Bay (an estuary, where sea water meets fresh). I usually ride my bike there (actually, Julie's bike .. Julie, by the way, is skiing in Mammoth this week). The entire trip (all the way around) is ~10 miles. The ride is especially nice on a sunny, warm afternoon. Definitely a special (therapeutic) place.

(Note: the Chesapeake Bay is the largest estuary in the entire US. Anybody familiar with the novel by Michener > Chesapeake?)

Lots of other folks out riding, running, walking & roller-blading. One guy was being pulled along on his skateboard by a dog. And I even saw two people on horseback.

I was feelings pretty strong before the injury, so (hopefully) I should be back up to normal operating speed (NOS) in no time.

The problem with the back, I've determined, is simply that the bug is getting heavy .. and it's hard to get anywhere very fast without carrying him. I mean, his isn't going to leave the part of his own volition .. not when he's having lots of fun. So therein lies the rub. (No more mornings like THIS.)
