Valentine's Day 2004

Sharon and I had a very leisurely Valentine's Day morning. We had stayed overnight in Room 1 of the Goodman House. The room was comfortable and the breakfast and the hospitality were great. It is probably one of the best breakfasts that I have had at a bed and breakfast. Unfortunately, the room was very noisy. The front of the house overlooks the Esplanade which is a major North South street in Chico. The traffic noise was very loud, including some cars that sounded like they were street racing after midnight.

After breakfast, we took our bikes to Bidwell Park. We covered about seven or eight miles starting in the lower park and going as far as we could in the upper park without mountain bikes and helmets. We talked about coming back later in the Spring with Jack. There is an interesting swimming pool in the creek in the lower park, a golf course in the upper park and lots of interesting trails in the canyon.

After the bike ride, we had lunch in downtown Chico at the Rawbar.

After picking up Jack and getting him to bed, Sharon and I watched Lost in Translation Saturday night on DVD. While I liked the movie, I am puzzled by the amount of accolades it has gotten. The movie does make me want to visit Tokyo someday.
