New bar tape for Twin Turbine A's aka Josh's 1985 Nishiki Century, Josh picked the two-tone from the local bike shop, and then wanted one side inverted from the other.

So proud of that boy.

This is unacceptable and will be addressed immediately, even as the rest of the family plays tennis.

Another sunrise ride, this time with the missus at a much higher pace than yesterday.

Vacation rolls on.

Well, if I have to work on bikes on vacation, I guess I can tolerate the view.

We went parasailing today, all five Folsoms plus the four members of our host family.  It was one of the coolest things I have done in literally years.

There was an unfortunate misunderstanding over cameras and as a result I left my camera in the car when I could have brought it and so only have the photos the boat crew took from the aft vantage point.

Which is unfortunate.  It is difficult to capture in words

1. How cool the view was from 400 feet over the Gulf (1000 foot payline with height based on wind and weight) and how quiet it was up there.

2.  What an incredible experience this was for Young Master.  Not a second of hesitation or concern.  Less then five minutes after reaching max height, he said 'I wish we could live up here forever.'

I am pretty bummed about missing the photo and video opportunities implicit in this experience, and I will be sure not to when we do this next time.

Boca Grande is not all riding bikes. Sometimes we also swing on ropes.

The missus and Young Master at the famous Whidden's Marina.
