It´s a Climb!

On my husband and my island weekend get-away, we biked almost 8 miles up and down the island´s hilly coast. It was a climb, but so worth it!


Catalina Island (our first view of it from the boat. 1 1/2 hr. ride to get to it)


Our warm up climb was gradual to the Botanical Gardens where they did not allow us in.


Here I am giving God the glory for giving us strength and health to be able to do this type of activity together.


 This was the first big climb, we turned this corner and there were 4 switchbacks (s-curves all up-hill) waiting for us. We did not stop till we got to the top!


We didn´t get a very good picture of the view at the top. When we turned the corner to start heading down, it went so fast, we didn´t stop. :(  It was gorgeous!

Ahhhhh... nothing like a complimentary coffee on the beach! That was a nice surprise.

We biked a bit more to cool down and turn the bikes in. It was an 1hr 1/2 ride in all! Then it was back to the hotel to get ready for our special dinner date! woo hooo!

Take time to exercise with your best friend, your husband. It´s an awesome way to spend time together!
