- I started this to chronicle our first tandem bike tour. Not sure where it will go from here. I do know that where I go I hope Deborah goes. "Life is not just a destination but a journey. While the expedition can be long and arduous, it can be full of beauty and pleasure as well"

Another Chapter in the Journey
The weekend of the Big Sur 1/2 Marathon finally came. We went to the expo on Saturday and managed to spend a few dollars and talk to a few people. It started raining the night before the run. It stopped just before we went to the start line. We finished the run in 2hrs 17mins. I was happy to finish. I got a lot of people yelling out "Hey broken arm guy, way to go". Sometimes it was just "one armed guy". People were very supportive. It started raining a cold rain within 10 minutes of our finish. We went straight to the car and didn't hang out. We stayed at the Jabberwok Inn. It is our favorite B&B and I strongly recommend it if you are going to Monterey. You won't find a better place. Our room had a Jacuzzi, fireplace, a beautiful view of the bay and a decanter of brandy. Needless to say we stayed in the tub for a long, long time and we demolished the brandy. It is a recovery drink I'm told. That night we had a wonderful dinner with a bay view. The next morning was my birthday and we spent the day cruising Carmel shopping for Christmas and then wine tasting in the Carmel Valley. The next day we had a leisurely breakfast and drove home. I can't think of a better way to spend a birthday weekend.
