The Atlantic Coast Bike Tour

During Spring 2015, a group of friends and I will be cycling the entire east coast from Key West, Florida to Bar Harbor, Maine, approximately 2,500 miles in total, following the Atlantic Coast route created by the Adventure Cycling Association. This will be a self contained fully loaded bike tour which means I'll be carrying around 45 lbs. or so. I'm looking forward to experiencing the east coast like never before. I plan to post pictures as we progress. Let's see how it goes and wish me luck. Here's a link to my blog for the Atlantic Coast Bike Tour.

San Diego 2015

After skipping a year, we were back in San Diego during January 2015 for a month. We stayed at our usual place, an older 4th floor one bedroom condominium overlooking the ocean and the infamous Pacific Beach boardwalk, a great place to enjoy sunsets and to people watch all day long. We love San Diego. What is there not to like: a great region for an active life style, fine eateries especially ethnic, and beautiful scenery. Below are a few pictures. To see the full set in Picasa, click on the link at the bottom right of this post.

From Los Cabos

It could be warmer here but then I could be at home too where it's below 30 deg at night. It's our first trip here staying at the all inclusive Riu Palace Resort. Regionally, the area is still recovering from a recent September hurricane which has left many resorts still closed along with a lot of damage to the local economy and infrastructure.

The Fountain of Wealth in Singapore

Here's a video of the Fountain of Wealth in Singapore, once the largest fountain in the world. Every two hours the full fountain is on display and visitors must exit fountain centre. Visitors often throw coins into the mini fountain at the centre and walk around it three time for good luck. At night, the fountain is the setting for laser performances, as well as live music and laser message dedications which we did not see.
