On this gray and rainy New Year's Eve, we waited at Sleepy Bee in Oakley for a wonderful breakfast and then stopped in Newport at Reser's Bicycle. It's one of Sarah's favorite places and I always enjoy Christmas shopping for her there.
I waited in the car to catch up on the national news - I know I shouldn't and it isn't good for me, but I just can't stop. Sarah and Winnie were gone for a long time. And then Sarah came out.
Sarah: Sorry it's taking so long. A thing happened. And it wasn't my fault. Winnie bought a bike!
And so she did, a green Salsa she had been admiring but hadn't found in the size she needed.
Don't worry about the bike getting to North Carolina. Their car top carrier has a rail for a bike. Of course. When they go down the road tomorrow, other travelers will be admiring that bike.
