Time challenged weekend to say the least.
My son was invited to a school friends birthday party Saturday night. That's great but it consisted of a 1 hour commute 1 way. It was a Halo (sp?) party. Do you know of these little guys? He has been a Lego's Star Wars/Clone wars fanatic up until about 3 weeks ago, now it's all about Halo.
These brave parents of this boy took on 16, 9-10-11 year olds. Of which 10 were spending the night. Great for the kids ! Crazy for the parents, but they seemed good with it. The weather was awesome and I took this picture when leaving there house. Quite the sunset over the mountains.
On top of that I had sushi for dinner again. This is a record that has not been seen in a few years, now 3 times in 1 month, I'm on a roll (no pun intended).
Now because I had to go fetch the little guy from "the party house" at some kind of reasonable hour. I opted out of a 2 hour run for a less time consuming ride at 34 miles. Yes I could have just gotten up earlier and got the run in, but damn I get up pre dawn every morning and just wanted to be normal 1 day.
So I was able to head down into Newport beach via PCH and opted to stay on the flat ground. I turned and headed towards South Newport with semi secluded wind blocked streets. Normally you would see allot of beach cruisers etc.. But because it's December and kind of early I really had non of that.
I made my way down through Lido,Balboa peninsula to where it dead ends to a channel that separates Corona Del Mar and Newport beach. This is better known as the Wedge. During summer South swells this beach break gets mutated with freak size waves.
This is a shot of the harbor between the two places.
Got home, through down a banana and a Gatorade and headed to get boy wonder. He was a sleepless wreck and I new he would be in nap mode the rest of the day. I gave both dogs a bath and chilled out myself. While the wife was with two of her friends making some 40 dozen cookies ? No lie I think that's the real number.
I'll hit a long run some evening this week and we'll do it all over again.
