Lopez Island from Sperry Island

What we all dream of in in San Juan Islands bike vacation. Get an eyeful of Mt Baker. Yesterday's weather. Hope it comes back soon.

My favorite part of San Juan Island

Weather's not ideal today but this part of SJI not that far from Friday Harbor never fails to please. Years ago it was unpaved. Views to the Olympics very nice today. And not a car in sight.

Bike commuting traffic very heavy for a Saturday

It's the solstice parade in Fremont

It's time for the annual parade of incomprehensible floats, musical cacophony, at least one speedo clad exhibitionist riding a longboard and lots of bicyclists dressed in p body paint and big smiles.
Fantastic weather today is a bonus. But I sort of miss the bad old days when the police used to try to arrest the nudists who used to gate crash the event to the hoots and hollers of the crowd.

The cure for "Juneuary" weather in Seattle

Weather is forecasted to be gray and grim for the weekend, depressing weather, as often happens, a week before the summer solstice hereabouts. So I've driven to the sun of Eastern Washington for a bike ride. I've enjoyed one heck of a tail wind ioutbound so that means I'll be fighting it all the way back on the Naneum Rd.
So I'm having a lunch break at the Thorp Mill before I turn my handlebars into to wind.
