Did you notice that I'm out riding in the middle of the week? Someday I'll get my contract canceled in July instead of February. Anyway, I'm job hunting again, today I looked in Salisbury, Seabrook and Hampton Beach, NH, no jobs there. It was worth looking.
New Hampshire has about 18 miles of beach. Most people head to Hampton Beach, by passing Seabrook Beach. How can you go to a beach over looking a nuclear power plant? I love the ocean, but rarely go to the beach during the summer. When I do go, I opt to head farther north to North Hampton or Jenness State Beach or Wallis Sands in Rye. My favorite hide a way is Sandy Beach in New Castle, I used to take Lisa there a lot because the water is calm, and there is shade and trees.
Why the beach report in March? Why not? No sense griping between snow and ice events. I had lunch with Kevin. He works an hour south of me in MA. There is no ground cover there, and I saw buds on the willow trees! After lunch I headed up the coast, and lost about 5 degrees. Oh well, I plugged myself back in!
I want to improve my photography, so I'm trying new things. If and when I get another steady paycheck, I'm looking at making the move to a Digital SLR camera. I think I've done all I can do with my trusty Canon SD750. I'm seeking advice from others on this one; and am currently leaning toward a Canon XTi body plus a couple of lenses.
As for riding. I had the requisite attempt by a white mini van to wipe me out. I didn't quite catch if she was talking on the cell phone and or yelling at her kids; all I know is I watched her move 3/4 of the way into my lane, I laid on the horn and moved over to the shoulder. I had a couple of feet of shoulder (I was in the left lane of a 3 lane hwy), there is a rumble strip then a little more before you'd slide into the grassy median. She was kind enough to over compensate for her error by jerking the van to the right. Although it didn't do anything interesting like a 180...
I arrived home in time to see Lisa walking up the hill. 150 miles and my butt was sore and my hands were really noticing the whole gripping thing. Yeah, it's been a sedate winter. Time for some exercises! Mental and physical.
Well until next ride, or maybe job, hope you have a chance to get out there and ride!
