2014 Sea Ranch Day 2
After breakfast, I took a short 3.1 mile run. I ran to the lodge and back and then added a short loop to the north before heading to the house. Along the ocean at Sea Ranch is one of my favorite places in the world to run. I will add a map in the next two weeks.
The plan for the day was to ride bikes. Sharon arranged to have some bikes delivered early in the morning. This is something that I have never done before. Sea Ranch has a set of interconnecting roads and trails so that you can ride from one end to the other without going on Highway 1.
Taking off in the late morning, we rode all the way to the pro shop at the Golf Course. Backtracking just a bit, we locked the bikes to a tree. We hiked down the Salal Trail in the middle of the golf course down to the ocean. The four of us hiked this trail two years ago. We sat in one of my favorite coves and ate a picnic lunch.
After lunch, we headed back to the house. In total, we covered just a little more than 17 miles. I will eventually post a couple of maps.
Getting cleaned up, we headed into Gualala, much to Sharon's chagrin, Jack's Pharmacy has closed. It was an odd store that actually sold fur coats... We ended up having a drink at the Sandbar. Sharon, Marlene and I wandered down to check out some possible houses for our October anniversary trip and then did some grocery shopping.
We finished the night with dinner back at the house and a movie. Phil made a great pot roast for dinner. While eating dinner, we started watching Bridge of Spies. This is one of the films that has been nominated for last year's best picture. Additionally, Mark Rylance was nominated for best supporting actor.
I really enjoyed Bridge of Spies. It was a nice way to end a very active day.
