We flew out late on a Wednesday night. The following morning we woke up to the sound of palm tree leaves blowing outside our window and the birds already singing their summer repertoire. Ah...vacation.
After a leisurely breakfast, G started to put the bikes back together so we could go ride and explore our new surroundings.

|He put mine together first- what a guy!|
|There were signs like this everywhere.|

|Had to stop for the photo opp.|
|One afternoon, we borrowed the beach-cruisers to go to the market.|
|My guy on the low-rider with groceries in tow.|
|Evening indulgence..it was vacation after all!|
|Afternoon stroll on the beach.|
|Seeking shelter from a short rain storm. We found this great little cafe for lunch.|
|Part of our dinner one night. It was so nice to have such fresh local veggies! Cooking in was the way to go.|
For the 6 days that we were there, we mostly rode our bikes, relaxed and ate delicious food. I realized that this was the first time I had been away from my home, overnight since our weekend to Maine over the July 4th. It was wonderful to step away from it all, but it always feels good to be home again.
As far as my overall health is concerned, I feel very fortunate to be able to say that I'm feeling stronger every day. Over 250 miles of road riding really helped to kick my butt into gear. There will always be something I can complain about-Like these darn tissue expanders! I still have my headaches and some residual joint aches but I have decided to just convince myself that the joint aches are not from the chemo but from all my riding!
Here's to the upcoming weekend. Thanks for reading.
