Even with clouds, or maybe because, I got a ton of beautiful photos. Believe it or not, this is cut down from 123. The auto awesomes are mostly awesome.

You know you want to!
 
Okay everyone, this is it.  The big one.  The one we've all been waiting for....  The 2014 National Bike Challenge is almost upon us!

Last year was our first group competing as a team and we took 6th place nationally in the standings.  Even though this is a US challenge, last year I'm pretty sure there were a good number of people from around the world competing on all of the teams.  There are chances to win some great swag, including a year's supply of toilet paper and some cool bikes and jerseys and stuff...  but that's not why we're doing it is it?

They've changed things up a bit, there's a specific site for it separate from any logger, and you can use a couple of different apps to log your miles (details: https://nationalbikechallenge.org/app-gallery ) and have some more statistics and a worse font and some other things.  The points work the same: 1 point for every mile you ride.  20 points for every day you ride.  Ride 1 mile every day, get 21 points a day.  Over the course of the 5 month challenge that's 3192 points, or enough to qualify for the diamond level prizes.  Commute by bike 5 days a week for all 22 weeks of the challenge and you have a 2 mile each way trip, but you don't ride at all on the weekends?  Still enough for the diamond level :)  

This game is skewed heavily in our favor, so let's win it this year, ok?  Log your miles when you ride to work and play!

At the pool that comes with lunch. What a great idea.

Make a spine poem! There aren't enough books on this boat...
 
There’s no way to resist creating a spine poem or two, with all of these books around. In honor of National Poetry Month, will you share a spine poem with us?

Also a good one. I like the bird that suddenly appears and walks off screen.

Hemingway's house with it's many 6 toed cats. Inbreeding is best!

The girls loved them and the cats were very patient.

Interesting perspective. I often wonder how I fit into society with all the oddities in my past dating/relationship life.

Especially when the 5 year old asks when I'm going to marry her daddy.

There are many abandoned sail boats in the Keys. Some left to rot, others stranded by storms. Birds sit on all the pilings.

Almost no one wears a helmet on a bike or motorcycle. There are bike lanes and drivers seem very patient with bikes, although that could just be a more laid back attitude in general.

I couldn't get very good shots of any of these things.

There's also a decided lack of fresh local fruit and vegetables. I asked at the fuel dock where I could get some fruit and the guy sent me 3 blocks (half mile...) To a place called Dion's that had a couple of plums. When I got back the guy mentions that I could have borrowed their trike...

Story
Tagline
Public librarian, mother, cyclist and sailor.
Introduction
I'm a librarian in reference and teen services. I love to read, find information and work with the public.  Family and community is very important to me.

I'm a cyclist and bike to work several days a week.  I ride safe and share the road.  I want the City of Seattle to make biking safer and easier for everyone.

My kid is a full grown adult and almost acting like one. My boyfriend has three lovely school age daughters that we enjoy half time.

I brew my own gingerale and sometimes a batch of beer.  I love to cook and to walk and bike around my city. 
Bragging rights
I've been a parent longer than I've been an adult. Wait, is that something to brag about?

I love this co-op. I visit every time I'm in town. They have just what I want food-wise and Wi-Fi too.

Ugly building but great resource. My boyfriend says it has the best nautical collection he's seen. Lots of books and digital resources. It's a little hard to find, but totally worth looking for.

A favorite. Excellent coffee every time. Totally worth having to get cash.

My son and I love this place. The dishes are a little spicy, but just order 1 less star than you usually do. The waitstaff will warn you too. Panang curry is our favorite.

Great sushi. This is the real thing and quite a treat to find in Arlington. It can be really busy at times.

The food here is excellent and they've done a great job of making the restaurant very comfortable. The coffee is strong and fresh. The history of the place is also interesting--it used to be a fireplace store, so one of the tables for two is in a bricked alcove that used to showcase a wood stove.
