Tried and true

Have you ever noticed that sometimes there is one ride/route above all others that lifts your spirits and gets your head on straight again?  

I have two such rides.  And tonight I decided that I needed to do one.  

A quick blast to the ice cream shack at Qualicum Beach was the remedy of the day.  25 min up the road.  Perfect weather. Awesome company.  

Ahhhhhhhh. A great night for a ride. 

This years addition

Every year I add a little ‘something’ to the saddlebags. Each piece has to fit a certain criteria. It has to be light weight, durable, inexpensive and small enough to fit into a motorcycle saddle bag.
While working up north I stumbled upon the idea of a Bluetooth wireless rechargeable keyboard. I’d heard rumours of such an animal, but never seen one – until I stumbled on one by accident.


Small and portable, this little marvel is a little larger than my 5″ x 9″ journal. It can be charged overnight in a wall socket and stowed in relatively small space. A very reasonable investment of $25 on sale found this little gem in my purse (yes it’s that small!), and an invaluable tool that turns my iPhone into a word processor.
