I awakened, showered, brushed my teeth, then headed out to Venice Beach!
I found free parking on a street several blocks away from the beach. I just don't like the idea of PAYING to park when I can park for free. Doesn't matter to me that I have to walk several blocks. I always THANK GOD I'm ABLE to walk!
I rented a BIKE! Yep, for the next two hours I biked from Venice Beach to Pacific Palisades. Way back when, Scott and I used to inline skate that trail, but today, I biked. It was indeed a workout of sorts. I mean, more than a FEW times I felt like pulling over and catching a breather. But I NEVER did. Not until I got to the end of my ride. There, I sat on a bench in front of a gorrrrrrrgeous ocean view, talked to other bicyclists and gave gratitude to God for being precisely where I was at that very moment. I LOVED it!
After I biked back to the bike rental place, I drove to The Grove. I figured, why not conclude the day with a delicious meal? So, Wood Ranch BBQ & Grill was my place of choice. I ordered half a chicken and what looked like an entire garden of broccoli! Lol. And I ate every, single morsel on the plate! Well, I left behind some of the chicken's skin, but everything else I ate!
Today was truly something special. Heck, truth be told...
